Current CRP Models

UBCO’s Computer Replacement Program (CRP) provides UBC IT supported equipment for full-time, permanent, ongoing positions at UBCO. Please refer to the Computer Replacement Program service page for full details on eligibility and costs. 

Additional accessories (i.e. monitor(s), web cam, wireless keyboard or mouse) must be purchased by the department. This can be done in Workday from the Microserve catalogue.
