IT equipment requests during COVID-19 response

As part of the University's reaction to COVID-19, the purchasing of computer hardware including desktop computers, monitors, laptops and other mobile devices has been suspended. 

If a laptop fails and is beyond repair due to the limitations of remote support, we may issue a replacement under extenuating circumstances. If your device does fail or is no longer fit for purpose please contact ServiceLine. Your line manager will then be contacted to provide a business justification as to why the device must be replaced.

This is to protect the health and welfare of our staff, as this requires staff returning to campus putting them at risk. We thank you for your understanding in this matter.

For further information and guidance on remote working, please see Away from campus.
