Provision of IT equipment

The University is committed to supporting staff to work dynamically by supplying them with the appropriate IT equipment.


All staff working dynamically will in time receive a University Laptop. There may be an initial delay whilst stocks are purchased and distributed.

In the meantime, staff who have them may continue to use Personal Laptops if required provided they follow the security measures required by the University for its use. Please refer to the security-related information available online.

Staff needing a University laptop should email and indicate within their request whether they currently have access to their own laptop and also which school or professional service they work in.


We will ensure that all staff whose roles are suitable for Dynamic Working have access to the components of a workstation consisting of a laptop, screen, keyboard, mouse, headset and USB hub (if needed). It is expected that staff will use the same laptop, keyboard, mouse, headset and USB hub when working both in the office and at home and that the screen will remain at the main place of work which for the majority of staff will be on campus.

Staff needing a primary screen, keyboard, mouse, headset or USB hub should email with their request. Staff with a DSE assessment indicating that they need a screen for their secondary location should contact the same email address and must include a copy of their DSE assessment signed by their departmental DSE assessor.

Peripherals will be delivered to local drop off points twice a week. As far as practicable, kit will be delivered within five days of request although there may be an increased wait time initially if there is high demand for an item or items.

The delivery location of your peripheral(s) will be indicated in your confirmation email.
