What to do if you move desks
If you’re moving to a new desk or office, complete a move request through Room Allocation. Make sure your new location has power outlets as well a network port within 3 metres of your desk. You can call the IT Service Desk if you need to organise additional power or network ports.
If your computer is locked down to your desk, contact the Facilities and Management Office to borrow the key to unlock it. Don’t forget to lock the computer to your new desk!
It‘s your responsibility to move the computer to your new location, but if you need help reconnecting your computer you can call the IT Service Desk for assistance.
All PCs should be locked down securely to your desk. Lock iT down are the ECU-preferred supplier of locks. You can browse their range online or contact them via the contact form on their website to request a quote.
