Computer Transfer (DO NOT USE FOR SURPLUS)

Why request this service?

When a UNCW owned computer (laptop or desktop), is to be transferred from one employee to another, this form shall be completed after the computer has been physically moved to its new location, either by the requesting department or Moving Services. Note that ITS does not move equipment. 

Once this request is received, ITS will update the computer inventory system with the new "owner," perform a data sanitization on the equipment, and configure the device for the person receiving it. 

*Please note: This service should not be used for Surplus requests. To surplus a computer go to the UNCW Computer Tracking System.

For the person receiving this device, this service includes:

  • Assistance with the transfer of data files from the old device to the new device.
