Technology upgrades to computing facilities

Starting in June 2014, University Systems will be upgrading, replacing, and improving the computing equipment available in the Clearihue, Business and Economics, and Human and Social Development computing facilities.  The following upgrades will occur:

  • Replacement of PC workstations in BEC160, BEC180, and CLEA105 with new Dell 7010 i5 workstations
  • Replacement of displays in CLEA102, HSDA150, BEC160, and BEC170 with new Dell 22” displays
  • Replacement of multimedia iMacs in CLE, BEC, and HSD with new 27” Apple iMacs
  • Upgrade of PC workstations and displays in drop-in areas
  • Deployment of our first Windows 8.1 computer lab in CLEA105            

These changes will be complete by July 31, 2014.  The upgrades will not impact any existing computing facilities bookings.
