System Distribution Policy

Systems that are returned to Information Technology through the replacement program or other initiatives may be assigned for other purposes after a thorough evaluation and assessment by the IT staff. Systems will be distributed on a first come first serve basis. Requests should be sent to The order of priority is as follows:

  • IT requirements
  • Faculty lab requirements
  • Student project requirements

At the end of use for the particular system, the system must be returned to Information Technology for reassignment or disposal, since the equipment is still the property of Olin College and must be accounted for under various federal regulations and procedures particularly around information security.
