Getting Hardware And Software
Some of the same vendors also provide discounts on systems purchased for use on campus. The guidelines for purchasing university systems differ from those purchased for personal use. Please review the Guidelines and Specifications before making your purchase to ensure your system will meet the required standards. All university computer and laptop purchases must be made using a purchase order. P-Cards are strictly prohibited. Please check with Procurement Services to make sure you are within their most current policy before making a purchase.
