Current Faculty 

Your current UB computer will be replaced with the computer you selected on the form.

  • Scheduling: You will be contacted soon to schedule installation for your new computer. For most requests, we will be ready to setup your new computer within 1 week. Special configurations will require more time. We'll let you know if that's the case.
  • Licensed software: If there is any software for which you have the installation media and license code, take this time to gather it in preparation of your new computer.
  • Local Files: Items such as your favorites, e-mail signature, and files on your desktop will be moved for you. If you save files locally anywhere else, either make a back up (to your M drive or a flash drive) or make sure to tell the support specialist about needing them moved.
