Computers funded by IT Services

All staff & postgraduate researchers are entitled to one computer.

If you have no University computer (or are requesting one for a new starter) you can request a computer from either the standard or the higher specification catalogue.

If you have an existing University computer it will need to be assessed to see if it is still fit for purpose before we consider replacing it. Please submit a request, choosing Laptop / desktop requests and then I want advice about an existing laptop / desktop:

To request a computer from IT Services:

1. Review one of the above catalogues and chose a device.

2. Download either the staff or postgraduate researcher validation form and complete it (if you are requesting on behalf of someone else, please enter their details in Section 1):

3. Raise a request in the IT Support Portal attaching the validation form to the ticket as requested. Choose Laptop/desktop requests and then I want a laptop/desktop:

Once your request is a logged, a University IT colleague will be in touch to discuss it with you within 2 working days.

For standard catalogue items, we aim to ensure that at least 90% of approved requests made are ready for configuration and collection or delivery within 5 working days.

For higher specification computers we will provide indicative timescales as known at that time.
