Updating your University managed laptop

Information Services regularly push out automatic updates to managed laptops to keep them up to date and secure.  We recommend that you power off your laptop at the end of each workday so that updates can be applied when restarting your machine. 

The automatic updates can take some time, particularly when you've returned from a period of absence or leave when a number of updates may need to be applied.  In this situation we recommend you allow time before you start work, to update your laptop.  

If your managed laptop has not been turned on in 3 months or more, you will need to contact the IS Service Desk​.  You will need to bring your laptop on to campus to be updated. 

You can proactively install Operating System updates from your laptop’s Software Center - find out how.  

If you need any further help and support when updating your laptop please contact the IS Service Desk
