Computer Refresh Program

Brandeis provides one university-issued computer to eligible faculty and staff members through the computer refresh program. Some computers necessary for a department's essential operations can be acquired through the program as well(budget permitting). Currently, university-managed computers are refreshed or replaced on a five-year cycle. Learn more about which departments participate in the program and see the refresh schedule.

  • Computer management
  • Security software
  • Device encryption
  • Cloud-based data backup
