Computer Purchases

Fordham University IT offers students especially designed and priced computer products. Fordham University does not require students to bring computers to campus, although students may find it desirable to do so. Fordham University IT provides support for both Macintosh and Windows operating systems.

The University has established relations with Dell, Lenovo, HP and Apple, which grant special pricing to Fordham students.  The University does not endorse any particular computer platform or vendor. Pricing is set by each individual vendor and questions about pricing of products should be directed to the vendors themselves.  Each vendor has a machine bundled especially for Fordham students with University recommended specifications. Students should consider getting an extended three-year warranty with accidental protection for computers as a safeguard against future hardware, operating system or drop/spill related issues.
