IT Helpdesk Equipment Checkout Service

UW Bothell Information Technology provides the campus with an equipment checkout service operating out of the IT Helpdesk located in the library building. Equipment checkout is available at the UWB-IT Helpdesk on the second floor of the library in LB2-218.


UWB-IT has been experiencing a high level of staff turnover and difficulties with hiring. In response, we have had to evaluate priorities and service levels and will need to implement temporary service reductions in certain areas. During winter quarter 2023, UWB-IT will have reduced hours for walk-up and equipment checkout at the IT Helpdesk. Visit UWB-IT's Get Help page for current hours. We appreciate your patience and understanding. For more information on service reduction/modifications, visit our News and Updates page.   

If you need to receive or return equipment and cannot make it to scheduled service hours, contact the helpdesk (, and we will work with you on a solution.
