Replacement Cycle Guidelines

Faculty & Staff Computers

The University's Computer Replacement Program's goal is to allow for replacement of computers for employees and education (eg., classrooms and labs) every four years. IT@Sam will notify you when it is time for replacement.

Recycled Computers

Subject to availability, additional recycled computers can be requested by departments. These computers may be used for student workers, contract employees and special events. Recycled computers are older and will therefore be re-evaluated for appropriate business use annually.

Lab & Classroom Equipment

Lab and classroom equipment is replaced every four years. If you believe that you have located a computer that is more than four years old, please report this to the Service Desk or e-mail the location of the equipment to the Computer Asset Management team.
