Dispose of Computing Resources
All Rice purchased devices (computers, hard drives, flash drives, printers, etc) capable of storing information must be purged of all information (user data, software licensed to the university, etc) before the transfer of ownership. This includes devices both being transferred from one department to another and those leaving the campus through the Rice Classifieds or recycling.
To have a Rice-owned computer cleaned of information:
- Open an OIT ticket to contact your Divisional Support Representative for assistance.
- Remove all Rice-owned devices capable of storing information and bring them to the Mudd Operations Center for IT to clean the drives.
- The Mudd Operations Center will take other Rice-owned data-capable pieces of hardware (such as backup tapes) and help make arrangements to properly destroy them.
Please contact the IT Security Office if you have a personal device that needs to be cleaned.
