Through the Computer Renewal Program (CRP), York University offers its faculty members a comprehensive suite of computers, desktops and notebooks, for the purpose of conducting routine computing activities related to their professional obligations, including research, teaching and service. Faculty members are eligible to replace / renew their CRP computer every 3 years.
Per University Policy, faculty members are not permitted to purchase CRP computers assigned to them. The last CRP must be returned upon installation of the new CRP. This allows the Faculty to cascade them to contract faculty (who do not receive computer resources), research labs and other teaching and research priorities within the Faculty, as identified through the Faculty’s annual computing plan.
CRP Questions and ordering steps:
If you require assistance in determining your choice of computer, kindly direct your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. Designated CTS technicians will provide a listing of available models and order form as well as provide consultation prior submitting your order.
Important CRP Information:
- All computer equipment obtained through the CRP program remains the property of York, even in instances where PER or Grant monies were used to cover a portion of the CRP cost.
- The new CRP will be deployed to you once the most recent CRP computer assigned to you has been returned to UIT.
- With Faculty and UIT approval, old CRP's may be redistributed across the faculty to support research initiatives.
