Things to consider

You will need to contact Facilities Management to arrange for office furniture and IT equipment to be moved.

Visit your new office beforehand to visually inspect the space you will be moving into. You may find that there are not enough network or phone sockets to meet your needs. If this is the case, contact the IT Service Desk to discuss your requirements and obtain a quote.

The Switchboard will need to be informed of any telephone extensions that will need moving to your new location.

Remember Information Services will provide support and assistance with any IT related problems you may have. All requests for assistance should be logged with the IT Service Desk on x7555 or email helpdesk@gre.ac.uk.
