Ordering

Please contact the Help Desk before you submit a purchase requisition form for computer software. The Help Desk will help you determine whether your purchase is compatible with existing equipment and our network  services.

Software licenses, keys, and access codes are delivered to the University Help Desk rather than to the requestor. When your software arrives, the University Help Desk will arrange to install it for you. Additionally, all media items and disks are kept by the University Help Desk. It is a university policy that individuals do not to keep their own media library or hard copies of software.

Microsoft Office is provided free of charge by the university help desk. All other Microsoft products require an approved purchase requisition form.
