Laptop Cart and Media Request Form

IT has a number of wireless laptop carts and other media that can be loaned.  To request an item such as a laptop cart or other media, please complete and submit the media request form below.  This is a one-time request, so if a laptop cart is needed for multiple class sessions it should be scheduled via the Event Management Software.  The Butler IT Help Desk will process your request once it has been submitted.  Requests are honored on a first come first served basis.  PLEASE ALLOW A MINIMUM OF 48 HOURS (EXCLUDING WEEKENDS) NOTICE FOR ALL REQUESTS!  Requests submitted less than 48 hours in advance may not be fulfilled.  

Eligibility:  Butler faculty/staff and approved guests/visitors.  Student organizations needing equipment for meetings are advised to have their faculty/staff advisor submit any requests.
