University staff laptop benefits

There are a number of advantages to using a University staff laptop rather than a desktop PC.

Work away from your desk

  • Work on your emails and Personal Z: drive files seamlessly whilst you are away from the University
  • Files and emails are synchronised so that you always have the latest version
  • Work on files and emails when you’re not connected to the Internet
  • Work safely on your laptop knowing that it has been encrypted so that if you lose your laptop data can’t be accessed
  • Connect automatically to the University wireless network

Work at your desk

  • When you connect using a docking station you can use a faster network connection, mouse, keyboard and screen, as if you were working at a PC
