Staff IT Equipment - Returning to and working from Campus
IT equipment - if you have applied to work on campus, you can access some additional kit to help you manage hybrid working.
It is expected that meetings will still take place on MS Teams for the time being which means that you may need to ensure you have the right equipment in the office.
You will be able to request the following:
- Webcam - If you will be using a desktop computer on campus you will need a webcam for Teams meetings
- Headset - you will need to use a headset with microphone for all Teams calls to ensure privacy and to reduce noise pollution in an office
How can I get hold of the kit?
Place your order via Ask us a Question or email firstname.lastname@example.org You do not need to provide a cost code, however, we are limiting provision to one item per person only. You can collect these items from the IT Helpdesk at the Library on your return to campus. Opening hours are 9 am to 5 pm, Monday to Friday (excluding bank holidays and customary holidays), closed for lunch 1 pm to 2 pm.
Advice for working in a shared office – All shared offices will have been allocated a maximum capacity, but if the office is large enough and suitably ventilated, you may still find you are sharing the space. As we are expecting meetings to remain on MS Teams for the current time, you will need to be be considerate to others and to ensure that noise levels are kept to a minimum. This means always using a headset for Teams meetings. You will also need to consider whether your meeting is likely to include a discussion of confidential information, in which case you might need to book a more private space for the meeting.
Perhaps consider if a committee room could be suitable for a private booking.
