Assets and 'attractive' items

The University requires that items valued at £1000 or more, or 'attractive' items (computer components, video recorders, televisions and other items liable to be stolen), should be recorded in an Asset Register.

When you place an order you should automatically receive an Asset Registration Form (doc) and if you dispose of an item previously on the asset register you should complete an Equipment Transfer (doc) This form should also be completed if you intend to keep an item of equipment at home (such as a laptop). 

Please note that items taken outwith University of Glasgow premises will not be covered by University of Glasgow insurance and therefore you should ensure that you have adequate home insurance to cover these items.

Any questions please contact a member of the Accounts staff.
