PCs for postgraduate student use

Information for School staff who coordinate PC collections for postgraduate use

If you require additional PCs for allocation to postgraduate students, please contact the Digital IT Service Desk who will register your requirement as a project request.

Additional Peripherals: The basic peripherals (monitor, keyboard, mouse) are supplied as part of the  Postgraduate PC specification; however additional peripherals can be supplied separately - refer to the list of available peripherals.

For PCs in this category, there is no automatic process to reinstall the disk image periodically; however a self-service re-image process exists and is updated with a new disk image every 12 months.

Site-licenced software

The University is licenced to deploy certain ‘utility’ software products on any University-owned PCs, by way of site licences. In particular, Microsoft Office products are deployed on University PCs as standard. Depending on the PC’s purpose, further site-licenced products may be included as standard. Certain other site-licenced products may be obtained via the ‘Application Explorer’, which is accessed by double-clicking on the ‘Application Explorer’ icon on PC desktops.
