A PC in this category is allocated to a business function rather than to an individual member of staff or job-share. It will often be shared by multiple members of a team; for example, a PC on a reception desk that is staffed via a rota.
If you need one or more additional PCs for use in this way, please download and fill-out an End-user computing device (EUCD) request form, then email it to the the Digital IT Service Desk. Each PC is supplied, where possible, from the University's end-user computing product portfolio, based on a needs-assessment.
Additional Peripherals: The basic peripherals (monitor, keyboard, mouse) are normally supplied as part of a PC package; 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 reimage process exists and is updated with a new disk image every 12 months.
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.
