Technology Guidelines for Telework

CRDG-specific Guidelines for Teleworking Please know that we are trying to minimize risk to our UH-owned equipment and to best mitigate potential damage or theft.

Here is a list of Do’s

  • Take your work laptop home
  • Take the associate power adapter for the laptop
  • Take a mini-display port or USB-C adapter to hook up to a display at home
  • Take a headset, webcam, or other accessories that you’ll need for video conferencing

Here is a list of Do Not’s/Need Further Action

  • Take an external display home
  • Take a printer or multi-function printer home
  • Any other technology items that were not listed
  • Contact Barb and IT if you feel that you absolutely need other UH equipment while working from home. You’ll need both of our approval before proceeding

UH ITS has provided a comprehensive list of guidelines to follow while working remotely. Please review and adhere to their recommendations. Contact us with any questions or concerns. Make sure to check back often as these may evolve. Their article is available here: Working Remotely during an Emergency

Keep in mind our previous Cybersecurity practices. This should also be applied to using personally owned technology devices. Contact us with any questions or concerns.
