Headsets & Teams telephones
Headsets: Available for collection from the Post Room, or can be posted for a small charge if you are working from home due to Covid-19. Contact the Post Room to pick up or post: firstname.lastname@example.org
Webcams need to be purchased through your department (through XMA).
Teams Telephone Handsets: New Teams handsets continue to be installed and are in all teaching spaces and shared areas (Whiteknights and London Road). If you are missing a handset, please contact the IT Service Desk (link on right).
Old handsets: Old handsets should be collected together for collection and disposal. If we're replacing an old handset with a Teams handset the engineer will pick it up, but for all individual handsets you need to book a collection through the IT Service Desk.
Telephone extension numbers: Your Teams telephone number is like your email address, it belongs to you. If your department needs to keep a telephone number, you should let IT know so we can reserve it, otherwise numbers from leavers will be recycled. If someone doesn't have a dial pad/telephone number and needs external calling, raise a ticket on the IT Service Desk (this applies to new starters as well).
