Theft of computers and small electronics from campus buildings and offices can be a serious problem because of their size and portability.

University employees who choose to use laptop computers and/or small electronics because of their convenience and ease to transport, are expected to exercise a higher degree of personal responsibility to secure the equipment when it is not in use.

Because the university is unable to purchase insurance to cover unexplained disappearances of property, there are currently no recourse or insurance funds available through the Office of Risk Management to cover unexplained laptop or small electronic thefts. Replacement costs will be the responsibility of the department.
