Clean Laptop Loaner Request Form for International Travelers: Click Here.
We have a small number of Dell and Mac laptops available for Mason researchers traveling abroad. Priority assignment will be first to faculty with demonstrated security needs (you have a TCP, are traveling to a high risk destination, etc.) second, to researchers in the order in which their request is received. Please complete and sign the request form. You may use a digital signature, or print the form, sign it manually, and send us a scanned copy (or legible photo). Clean laptops can usually be taken to Cuba (if the proper documentation is filed with the Federal government in advance, by our office), but generally cannot be taken to other countries subject to comprehensive U.S. economic sanctions, such as Iran, Syria, North Korea, and the Crimea Region of Ukraine without advance U.S. government permission (obtaining such permission cannot be guaranteed, and may take significant time).
Send the signed form to firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your machine. We will be in touch by email to coordinate delivery with you.
We do our best to accommodate last minute requests, but these machines need to be configured for individual researchers, so please send us your form when you make your flight reservations, if not before.
