Technology Refresh Scheduling

Resources for: Faculty Staff
icon Close

Computing Services welcomes you to schedule your technology refresh appointment. The refresh will be performed on-site at both the Florham and Metropolitan Campuses from Monday, February 14, 2022, through Friday, March 4, 2022. All faculty and staff with Apple MacBook laptops are required to schedule a refresh appointment.

Refresh appointments can be booked for and will occur at the following locations:

Florham Campus:

Metropolitan Campus:

While Computing Services is checking all scheduled appointments to ensure Code42 backup is installed and properly working, it is a great extra step for each individual to do the same, especially if requesting an appointment within a few days.

At the request of the Data Security Incident Response Team (DSIRT), Computing Services will be checking for WISP compliance. If an individual schedules an appointment and is not in compliance with our WISP policy, their appointment will be rejected and they will be notified to re-schedule their appointment once they have successfully completed the WISP course. Employees are required to take a short self-directed training course once every two years to ensure WISP information remains top of mind.

The WISP training, entitled Understanding the Written Information Security Program, can be found at:

To ensure a smooth appointment, Computing Services recommends the following:

  • Check and verify Code42 is installed and backing up your system (see the link below for: Review Code42 – Tutorial: Section 2 Part 4 Verifying a backup Progress .)
  • Back up all personal documents to an external drive.
  • Bring your mobile device with DUO Security application for DUO authentication processes.
