Future Computer monitors in public student workspaces and meeting rooms to come with USB-C ports
95
I would like for future purchases of computer related products in public student workspaces to come USB-C ports.

Why: When a student comes to the desk they can plug in their laptop to the monitor(s) so that they can charge their laptops as well as use the desktop monitor as a second screen for their laptop while they study.

USB-C is an open standard for cables which allows for data transfer, display signal and power to be carried on one cable all at once. Most new devices (especially ultra/notebooks) come with a USB-C port as their default port. The EU is also currently at the moment pushing for official legislation mandating new phones to come with USB-C ports so as to ensure connectivity for all.

No e-waste will (directly) be created as it will only need to be done when new technology is purchased by the university inline with their existing aquisition cycles.
