Client Computer Services

Rose-Hulman hardware technicians are vendor-certified to provide warranty repairs on the Institute-selected laptop computers while the student is actively enrolled at the school. This particular laptop computer includes a four-year warranty. If, for some reason, a student's laptop is damaged and the damage is not covered by the warranty, the student must file an insurance claim with the Manager of Client Computer Services to be eligible for repair service.

Client Computer Services makes every effort to repair a student's laptop computer within a three-hour period. However, if a repair takes longer than three hours, a similar laptop may be available for temporary loan to the student. Once the repairs are complete, the student will be notified to return the loaner laptop and pick up their laptop computer.

Rose-Hulman recommends that students perform periodic cleaning and maintenance activities to protect both the laptop computer and their data. The Client Computer Services staff is available to assist students with questions regarding laptop service.

The Help Desk (ext. 8989 or 812-877-8989) is the primary point of contact for all interactions with computer, network, telecommunication and laptop-related questions, including laptop repair services. The Manager of Client Computer Services (ext. 8933 or 812-877-8933) is the point of contact for insurance claims, stolen laptop claims and upgrade questions. Business hours for the Help Desk and Client Computer Services are 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, except official Institute holidays.

Enhanced 911 Services

Rose-Hulman provides enhanced 911 services to all users of the campus telephone system. This service enables the campus PBX (Private Branch Exchange) telephone switch to interact with a public 911 database maintained by the IAIT Department. When a 911 call is placed from any campus telephone, the 10-digit number is sent with the call to the Terre Haute Police Department and compared to the location database. This service allows the Terre Haute Police Department to pinpoint your location for the responding agency. At the same time, the Rose-Hulman Office of Public Safety is also notified of the caller's location.
Please do not hang up on the 911 operator if you have dialed by mistak; simply explain to the operator there is not an emergency. This will save the Terre Haute Police Department Operators from having to call you back or dispatch an officer.

Campus lakes

Swimming and fishing are permitted in the lakes on campus. However, you should never swim alone or go into deep water unless you are a good swimmer. The larger lake has depths of up to 15 feet and is fed by several cold water springs in the west end of the lake. As a safety precaution, no one is allowed in the lakes after dusk or before daylight. Skating during the winter season is permitted on the large or small lake but only after notification that the lakes are safe. The Office of Environmental Health and Safety will monitor the ice thickness on a daily basis during winter months (December - March); once the ice has reached an acceptable thickness, the campus community will be notified via e-mail that it is safe to participate in ice related winter activities. Tossing a person into the lake ("laking") against the person's will or mass lakings are not permitted. Absolutely no horseplay is permitted in or around the lake areas. Swimming is at your own risk. No lifeguards are on duty.
