Computer Checklist

FOR COVID-19 SAFER AT HOME USE ONLY

While not ideal -- we understand that some logistical issues during the Governor's "Safer at Home" order might necessitate you removing your computer from campus to work from home.


We recommend taking a backpack or bag to carry items, as monitors must be carried separately.

Please use the following checklist:
  • Verify that "Cisco AnyConnect" is installed on your computer.  
    Click on your Start Menu and search for "Cisco." 
    If you don't see this option, please scroll down to: How to Install Cisco AnyConnect for installation instructions.

  • Take the Power Supply and the cable from the supply that plugs into your computer.

  • Take the keyboard and mouse.

  • Take one monitor, connection cable, and power cable. If needed, you can take a second, but carrying two is not advised, unless you have a safe way to transport the other equipment.

  • Take webcam or speakers (if applicable).

  • DO NOT TAKE YOUR POWER STRIP - please leave that behind.
Questions, please call the helpdesk before leaving campus 920.735.5644
