Graduate Student Laptop Distribution

Graduate Student Laptop Pickup

August 10, 2012

Welcome to Wentworth Institute of Technology! To facilitate a smooth transition to Wentworth, students are required to participate in the laptop computer distribution. At the distribution, you will be given your laptop computer and be guided through the initial steps essential for you to properly utilize your new laptop.  

As a Graduate student, your laptop computer distribution will happen on Tuesday, September 4, 2012, from 9:00AM to 5:30PM in the Tansey Gymnasium. Please bring your Wentworth student identification card with you. You cannot receive your laptop without your student identification card. Students in the Master of Architecture program will receive a new Apple MacBook Pro laptop computer. We remind you that classes will be in session and you need to make every effort to attend class. You will not be excused from class to pick-up your laptop; we have expanded the laptop refresh hours and you do not need to skip class to pick up your laptop.

If you do not pick up your laptop on September 4, 2012, the next opportunity to do so will be on September 5, 2012, from 9:00AM to 3:30PM at the DTS Help Desk, room 320 Beatty Hall (note change of location).

Beginning September 7, 2012, you will need to make an appointment to receive your laptop by calling the Division of Technology Services Help Desk Beatty Hall, Room 320, 617-989-4500. When calling the Help Desk, identify yourself as an incoming Graduate student who missed laptop distribution.

If you do not contact the Help Desk and make arrangements to pick up your new laptop by the close of business on Wednesday, September 19, 2012, a hold may be placed on your account to prevent you from registering for classes or viewing grades online in the future. You will then need a form from the Student Service Center to present to the DTS Help Desk in order to pick up your new laptop.

You can always find information about the program at the Laptop Program website www.wit.edu/laptop or contact the Laptop Services team at laptop@wit.edu if you have questions.

On behalf of the Laptop Distribution Team, thank you for your cooperation and best wishes for a successful academic year!
