Standard Computer Hardware Offering

General Information

All full-time, eligible staff and faculty positions are provided and assigned a computer as part of their employment. This computer will be replaced once every 4 years in order to maintain security, functionality and efficiency for the staff member. There are pre-selected offerings available to choose from but please note, some staff offices may not have a choice between macOS and Windows based on the software used within the given department.

Please Note: A laptop option will be the default option provided for staff or faculty during the annual CAP refresh. A desktop computer (iMac or Dell AIO) will only be provided upon request and with approval from a supervisor.

If you are currently assigned a desktop, it will be swapped out for a laptop during your next CAP upgrade.
