What is Considered a Moves Request?

Employee Move: This is a request to move an existing employee to a different office 

New Employee Move: This is a request for when an office needs to be set-up for a new employee. This type of move request will  include the set-up of a computer and office phone (if applicable) for the new employee. 

To find more information on Setting up a new Employee please see MRU's Human Resources Toolkit and/or Onboarding Guide

Asset Move: For when only phone, computer, printer devices and/or other ITS assets are being moved. It should be noted that an asset move isn’t needed to move furniture, but furniture can be included in an assess move.
