How to purchase IT related hardware, software, & services

ITS provides IT-related purchasing assistance to academic and administrative departments for computers. IT-related peripherals can be purchased by departments without pre-approval from ITS.

ITS manages software licensing for campus site-licensed software and works with departments to ensure that software is licensed, legitimate, and up-to-date.

Personal purchases are not supported by ITS. Employees and students can purchase software for themselves at a discount through our partner.
