UC Merced is committed to the success of our students and instructors during this time of remote instruction and campus operations.

We are working to ensure the success of campus community members by providing on loan technology resources that support teaching and learning away from campus.

Technology for Graduate Students: We recommend that graduate students have access to internt and a computer or laptop. Graduate students who serve as teaching assistants should also have access to a webcam (included with most computers) and a microphone – either a headset (for fully remote instruction) or lapel (for hybrid instruction).Please note that tablets are offered as an option but are not guaranteed. As an alternative, we are able to provide webcams and a tripod which should provide similar functionality. If you do not have access to one or more of these resources, you can request via ServiceNow

Beginning Spring 2021, the Program will not provide internet access computer or laptop for faculty. If you do not have access to a webcam or headset, you can submit a request through our program via ServiceNow. If you are in need of a MIFI device, you can submit a request through the Office of Information Technology. For additional technology support, please contact your Department Chair.
