How to request this service:
The Arts Computing Office will contact faculty and staff when they are eligible for a new computer, which currently occurs approximately once every 4-5 years. Minor deviations from the schedule (one-year deferral or early replacement) are considered by the Associate Dean (Infrastructure and Technology) on an individual basis.
Older computers for the use of sessional lecturers are periodically replaced on an as-needed basis. The Arts Computing Office will contact department administrative staff once a year to determine whether the existing computers are sufficient to meet anticipated needs and make appropriate arrangements. Outside this annual cycle, department administrative staff may contact ACO whenever they identify a need for computers for sessionals beyond the resources that are currently available in the department.
Average length of time to complete request:
