Device Relocation Request

Start of fall quarter is a particularly busy time for office moves. If your office is planning on moving workstations and devices, this request may take up to two weeks. Please plan accordingly.

When do I need to fill out a device relocation spreadsheet?

Any time you are adding, removing, or moving any of the following pieces of equipment:

  • Computers
  • Laptops
  • Cisco phones
  • Printers
  • MPS Printers
  • Any other device connected to the wired SeattleU Network

Why do I need to fill out a request?

  • The spreadsheet helps ITS to validate that there is enough infrastructure to support the devices you are moving at their new location.
  • The spreadsheet ensures that network settings will be configured properly to support the devices you are moving at their new location.
  • It is necessary for keeping our emergency records up to date. Emergency phone calls made from Cisco phones are coded to the room that your phone is in. This information has to be updated every time your phone moves.

How long does it take to process my request?

Move requests typically take up to five (5) business days to process from the date a completed Device Relocation Matrix is submitted to ITS. You can reduce the processing time by ensuring all the required data is provided in the spreadsheet. ITS will then contact you to confirm the date/time of the addition, removal, or move. To ensure your request is completed by a specified date please submit it as early as possible and specify the date on which you need the move to be completed.
