Available Personal Protective Equipment

KU has purchased large quantities of PPE departments who normally do not purchase PPE for traditional job duties.

These items include:

  • Cloth face masks
  • N95 respirators (requires justification)
  • Hand sanitizer (bulk and personal sized)
  • Alcohol sanitizing wipes
  • Plexiglass (or similar material) “sneeze guards”
  • Powered air purifying respirator (PAPR) units

KU Operations is also placing additional standard-issue protective supplies in buildings for individuals and departments to use, including:

  • Bulk hand sanitizer stations for refilling personal bottles
  • Disinfectant stations with spray bottles and paper towels for cleaning surfaces
  • Sanitizing wipes in all classrooms/teaching areas
  • Hand sanitizer dispensing stations near entrances and other locations

How to Order

Request PPE through your supervisor or department administrative contact.

Note: A PAPR (powered air purifying respirator) can be requested by emailing

Use the PPE Requisition Form to order supplies (other than PAPRs). The PPE request is a web form (you do not have to log in to Maximo to access). Once submitted, a work order is created. Once completed, you will be notified via an automated email form.

If your department does not typically purchase PPE, there is currently nocharge for securing PPE. If your department does normally purchase these PPE items, you will be charged for those items.
