I'm eligible for a new computer this year? When will I get it?

All Gies staff will receive a new computer every four years. Our FY20 replacement cycle has been delayed due to the COVID-19 crisis and will resume as soon as staff return from remote work.

I have unique computing needs. Can I get a non-standard setup?

The standard staff computer is a Windows-based laptop or desktop. Staff in creative roles such as marketing, design, or videography can choose an Apple computer. If you have advanced computing needs, please contact us at
