Departmental Computer Purchases

Most University computers are on a Lease Program. After the lease expires, User Support Services will contact the end-user about the replacement of the equipment. Normally requests for computer equipment for academic departments go through the Academic Vice President's office as part of the budget process.

Fordham University departments may purchase computers, computer accessories, and software for departmental use. Computer Acquisitions may configure for pricing a machine with the department's detailed specifications or the departments may inquire about Fordham's standard requirements.  
Computer Accessories:
Scanners, memory, digital cameras, external hard drives, printers, and other computer accessories may be purchased through Computer Acquisitions.
