Students are eligible for discounts at most approved vendors. Simply select the category of item you are interested in purchasing and follow any links or instructions for personal or non-institutional purchases.
Some software is available for students to download directly from the campus download server. Other commercial software and specific peripherals (scanners, cameras, color printers, etc.) are available for use in the Windows and Mac/Unix labs.
