UITS offers free storage and security of media such as external disk drives, backup tapes, CDs, and DVDs. Storage is within the controlled environment operated by UITS in the Computer Center building.
UITS provides two different containers that can be locked. Users provide their own small padlocks and retain the keys. Small containers require one padlock, while larger containers require two. UITS has no access to the media itself and only handles the locked containers.
Potential users can see available containers by visiting the Operations Center on the ground floor of the Computer Center building.
Media containers are locked at all times while stored at UITS. Access to the containers is granted only to owners of the media and other individuals authorized by them. Those whose names are not on the list of authorized individuals will not be allowed access to container—even if they have a key. Those granted access will need to provide a photo ID.
UITS will inspect the contents of each container in the presence of its owner or authorized representative prior to accepting it for storage.
To ask a question about storage or to set a time to bring your media to the location, contact the Operations Center at (520) 621-2971.
