TCNJ Equipment Loan Program


During the transition to remote work and learning for the Summer and Fall 2020 semesters, the IT Department has implemented the Equipment Loaner Program for students, staff and faculty. To help compensate for the loss of access to our facilities such as the TCNJ offices, open computer labs, and eduroam, members of the campus community can request loaner equipment to use during this remote period.

To start the process, just fill out this Google Form to list the equipment you are requesting and then provide a brief explanation of the functions needed of the equipment at the end. Once your request has been processed, then you will be notified via email whether it has been approved or not based on the availability of the equipment you requested.

Contingent on your request being approved, you will need to visit campus and pick up the equipment from Green Hall.

Though fall 2020 classes will be held remotely, any student, faculty or staff member coming to campus, for any reason, must do everything possible to keep the community safe. The Roar app now provides a convenient way to conduct your daily checkup. It is highly recommended that you complete this checkup daily even if you do not plan to be on campus. 

Employees must complete the daily self-checkup to monitor their health on the days they plan to be on campus. Students living in the residence halls also must complete the daily self-checkup. 

Any other students or visitors are also asked to complete this checkup before coming to campus. The daily self-checkup is available in the TCNJ Roar app and on the Health and Wellness page on the Fall 2020 website (https://fall2020.tcnj.edu/health-and-wellness/).

In response to COVID-19, the President has announced The College of New Jersey is adopting practices of social distancing and preparing for remote work options.

Things to do to prepare for working remotely:

  • Move any files you have on your local hard drive to Google Drive, or TCNJ Network Drives (R/H Drive)
  • Remember to bring your laptop charger and any devices that you may need while you are home
  • Setup Duo multi-factor authentication before you leave the campus.
  • Try out Google Meet and Google Chat with your coworkers
  • Test any applications you may need to use remotely
  • TCNJ VPN may be needed to connect to some services remotely, like accessing TCNJ Network Drives. If you anticipate needing to use VPN make sure you have installed and tested the VPN client.

All of this information and more can be found here on the IT webpage regarding the latest procedures and best practices for working remotely during this time.
