The purpose of this policy is to outline the University Information Technology's computer replacement schedule.
Due to the pandemic, all replacement cycles are currently delayed by 1 year. This means if your computer was "up for replacement" in Fiscal Year 21/22 then it will now be up for replacement in 22/23. This will remain in place for the foreseeable future.
All university owned desktops used by full-time faculty and staff are eligible for replacement in the 5th fiscal year after purchase. Desktop computers in lab areas are eligible for replacement in the 6th fiscal year after purchase.
All university owned laptops used by full-time faculty and staff are eligible for replacement in the 4th fiscal year after purchase.
