KSU Anywhere is a University Information Technology Services mobile work initiative for Kennesaw State University employees. Employees of colleges and departments participating in the program may exchange their desktop computers and/or existing laptops and mobile devices for a new PC or Macintosh laptop device.

The initiative is designed to empower work flexibility and support productivity for KSU employees. KSU Anywhere laptops can be used across Kennesaw State campuses and off campus or connected to UITS provided desktop monitors for a traditional office work experience.

KSU Anywhere devices are funded by the Office of the CIO and are subject to lifecycle replacement and university technology equipment procedures.

The KSU Anywhere initiative is deployed by department/college. For questions, please contact the KSU Service Desk.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

  • KSU Anywhere includes: desktop or laptop workstation (laptop, monitor, peripherals) selections from Apple and Dell.

  • With approval from your dean/division head and your acceptance of the terms and conditions, you may keep one of your secondary devices; however, that device will not be eligible for UITS lifecycle replacement in the future and must be replaced using division/college funds. If the device cannot run a supported operating system (currently Windows 10 and macOS 10.14 Mojave) you may not keep the device that is eligible for replacement as there are inherent security risks associated with older devices running unsupported operating systems.

  • All devices, including primary and additional, will receive full hardware and software support if the computer can run an Office of the CIO supported operating system or is not otherwise considered a legacy device. However, it will no longer be eligible for lifecycle replacement and must be replaced using division/college funds.
  • Employees receiving a KSU Anywhere laptop must exchange all Office of the CIO desktops/laptop machines and mobile devices that are currently assigned to them. IT Operations will provide a list of devices assigned to the employee that should be returned during the appointment scheduling process.
  • Eligibility is determined by the age of the employee’s main office computer. If the main office computer is newer than 4 or 5 years, it will not be eligible.
  • Eligibility is determined by the age of the employee’s main office computer. Department purchased equipment may be replaced at the discretion of the department head.
  • LCR stands for life cycle replacement. The Office of the CIO regularly evaluates the age of campus equipment and, as funding is available, replaces aging equipment.
  • You will be contacted by the KSU Service Desk as your device becomes eligible for LCR. If you have a question as to when your device will be eligible, please email service@kennesaw.edu and include the KSU asset tag of the device; we will respond as soon as possible.
