Every summer we upgrade all the student computer rooms on the campus. (And give the PCs a good clean while we’re at it!)
Computers get a completely fresh installation of Windows, along with any new software required for teaching in the new academic year. We also replace older equipment with newer models and check for faulty or missing hardware. It means a bit of disruption for students working on the campus over the summer months but we do our best to keep the disturbance to a minimum and it’s important to make sure all the equipment is up to date and working well.
We look after about a thousand student computers so the process takes several weeks to complete but a lot of rooms have already been updated and we should have them all ready for September.
