UC Information Technologies (UCIT) has partnered with Office of the University Architect, Student Government and UC Libraries to place a mobile device charging station in “UCIT @ Langsam,” the only 24-hour computer lab on campus.

The free-standing charging kiosk offers a total of nine key-coded lockers that provide the security of leaving phones or tablets while they charge. Seven lockers are compatible with Apple iPhones and Android phones, and two accommodate iPads or Android tablets.

“With nearly 38,000 devices accessing our wireless network every day, there is a significant demand to keep mobile devices charged up on-the-go,” said Nelson C. Vincent, vice president for information technology and CIO. “UCIT aims to meet this demand to keep all of our partners on campus – students, faculty and staff — charged and connected to the important work they do to propel the institution’s education and research agenda forward into UC’s third century.”

UCIT plans to install another kiosk in the Tangeman University Center food court in the coming weeks.
