Visiting Faculty Members are encouraged to bring their own computers to campus; however, in order to receive support from the IITS ProDesk, the following conditions must be met:
- The computer must meet our minimum requirements for support.
- The computer may not be more than four years old.
- The College’s antivirus software, Kaspersky, must be installed. Download instructions are available on our software download page (an activated Haverford email account is required for download).
Once on campus, select “Networked Printers” in order to install the printer closest to your office. For printing to multifunction copiers, select “HP Copiers – Pharos” and follow the instructions to complete the HP Copier form and install the copier on your computer. Visiting faculty members with computers that meet the minimum requirements for support may schedule an appointment with the ProDesk for assistance. Appointments can be scheduled online or by calling the ProDesk at 610-896-1480.
A Note About Securing Your Computer
Although thefts on campus are not the norm, the Haverford College campus is not immune to them. All Faculty are strongly encouraged to use particular care in locking their offices. In most cases of theft, computers were stolen from unlocked offices.
Visiting Faculty Loaner Pool
Although the College does not provide computers for visiting faculty, we do have a limited number of previously used desktop computers available for semester or academic year loans. Visiting faculty who do not have a computer to bring to campus may request a computer from our pool of previously used desktop computers for the duration of their appointment. To make a request please fill out the form below. Mac and Windows computers are typically available but quantities are limited and requests are fulfilled based on availability.
Note: Delivery date is not guaranteed as computers can take up to 2 weeks to prepare. Please contact ProDesk if request requires urgent attention.
