Digital Resilience Hardware Kits

Work Remotely with the Right Gear  

Northeastern is engaged in extensive COVID-19 outbreak contingency planning to prevent any disruption to student learning and to ensure business and educational continuity across all university operations.

As teaching, learning, and business operations move online, a number of hardware options are available to borrow from the IT Service Desk. Because this hardware is limited in some cases, loans may be available and may be prioritized for Northeastern community members who feel they have a business need.  
 

Below is the available hardware for loan and how it can help keep members of the community connected and productive. 

Microsoft Surface

A mobile personal computing device that allows users to access university resources, and to participate in meetings and conferences with integrated web cam and microphone. Preinstalled with Google Chrome, Northeastern’s virtual private network (VPN) client, Workspot, Microsoft Teams, and the Office 365 suite.

Logitech Web Camera

A web camera with built-in microphone that can be installed on an existing computer or monitor, allowing users to communicate effectively in meetings and calls.

Mobile Hotspot

Provides reliable, high-speed internet connection to users in areas where they do not already have access to one. This comes preinstalled with the SIM card and battery required.

Need a Kit?  

Hardware kits are available for loan and may be customized based on the business need. Requests to borrow one of these kits should be submitted through the IT Service Desk. An off-campus shipping address must be provided to enable delivery of approved hardware requests.
