Computer Name

A Computer Name is a unique identifier issued to every university owned device.

Current university computers use the following convention: (UWM or WAK)(6 digit Asset ID) (e.g. UWM001234).

Older computers may follow other conventions, such as (Department)-(Building/room)-(computer number) (e.g. CCL-BOL225-11), and (SA)-(Service Tag) (e.g. SA-1A2B3C4).

For a desktop computer, the label with the computer name is usually found on the top or side of the tower.
