When setting up your work space, wherever you are, it's important to consider the following:
- Taking technology off campus: Notify your school/department administrator or budget manager that you intend to take office technology home.
- Procuring technology: Per campus policy, IT equipment purchases such as computers (laptops, tablets, desktops), printers, and software must be coordinated through UWB-IT to ensure security, privacy, and compliance; viability; and asset management. Send technology requests to firstname.lastname@example.org or submit a computer purchase request or software request form to start the technology procurement process.
- Software for your personal computer: UW-IT offers software for personally owned computers at reduced or no cast through the UW UWare program. This is available to all current staff, faculty, and students.
