Help Moving Humanities Instruction Online

HumTech is here to help with moving Humanities finals and instruction online as a result of COVID-19, and we are coordinating with all other support teams on campus.

Here is a targeted list of options for getting help with winter finals and spring-quarter course prep. When in doubt, email ritc@humnet.ucla.edu.

Loaner Equipment

There is still some loaner equipment available from UCLA. For those who still need a device, you should complete the library’s  online form. Please note that to complete this form, you must create an account in the library ticketing system.
The pick up location for equipment is the loading dock at Powell; a drive-up option will be available.
Pick up is scheduled for Monday 3/23 1pm-5pm, or Tuesday 3/24 9am-1pm.
