iPad loaners for students, TFs, CAs and non-ladder faculty
Students enrolled in courses that indicate on the syllabus that iPads are required for their pedagogy are eligible to borrow one for the semester. If students had an iPad for a course last semester (fall 2020), they will be able to keep the device for course needs in the spring 2021 semester. Students who do not have the technology they need for spring 2021 courses should submit their request via HUIT's Loaner Equipment Request Form. TFs, CAs, and non-ladder faculty teaching courses that require iPads are also eligible for a loaner and should follow the same procedure and complete the Loaner Equipment Request Form.

Technology Loans for Students to Meet Minimum Requirements
The FAS has established minimum requirements for remote teaching and learning, in consultation with HUIT, faculty, staff, and students. Students who do not have what they need to meet these minimum requirements for learning should first contact their resident dean, and then the HUIT service desk at (617) 495-7777 or complete the Loaner Equipment Request Form to determine their eligibility for technology loans for the semester from Harvard.
Students on financial assistance have received a generous Remote Room and Board Allowance intended to cover the educational costs of learning remotely, including internet bandwidth.
Harvard will ship equipment to domestic addresses. During the nine days of student arrivals, students on campus can pick up equipment they have requested from the HUIT a van outside Sever Hall. Harvard will make individual arrangements to supply equipment to international students when they contact the Service Desk.
Technology Loans for TFs and CAs
Technology Loans for Non-ladder Faculty
Non-Ladder Faculty are also eligible for technology loans by contacting HUIT at (617) 495-7777. The OUE has not been authorized to provide loaner technology for ladder faculty.
