Return your hotspot: Do your part to help your fellow students and colleagues

At the start of 2020, the University procured a limited supply of hotspots to serve our students and employees who were impacted by COVID. While the University has reached out to ask for help, only 10 percent of these devices have been returned and are readily available to help with isolation and quarantine needs. At this time, these devices are scheduled to be turned off at the end of February 2022, as previously available IT funds have now been exhausted to support this very expensive service. In the interim, we are asking for your help. Please help us to help your fellow students and colleagues who are impacted by COVID to stay connected while we still can. If you currently have a University-issued hotspot that is not being utilized, please return it to CCIT in Cooper Library or the Clemson Computer Store, located on the first floor of the Hendrix Center.

Internet accessibility is a critical need for our students and colleagues while in isolation and quarantine, supporting mental health and academic/work-related needs. Internet accessibility helps individuals to maintain social connections with friends and loved ones, provides access to digital streaming options and helps those who would like to stay connected to their work and not fall behind during the isolation and quarantine window. Returning your hotspot will help Clemson students and colleagues stay connected.

If you have any questions, please contact the CCIT Support Center at 864.656.3494, emailing , or starting a chat at
