Desktop rollover program

About this service

In June 2005, IST initiated a Desktop Rollover (DTR) program to provide a regular renewal of desktop computers in the academic-support areas of the university. Dell is currently the preferred computer supplier.

The goal of the Desktop Rollover program is to provide full time eligible staff with high quality computers that perform well during the machine's life cycle. By running newer equipment staff benefit from the use of better performing computers while IST spends less time and effort performing maintenance and repairs.


  • Computers purchased through the Desktop Rollover program are at minimum, Silver or Gold EPEAT certified.

  • Laptop computers are more energy efficient than desktops 

See the program guidelines and details for more information.
