Computer Purchasing


HSU staff and faculty are able to purchase PCs (from Dell) and Macs (from Apple) for departmental use at discounted prices. By limiting the number of manufacturers and models recommended to the campus community (see the ITS Computer Selection web page for more information), the University not only saves money and has more readily-available parts for maintenance, but also assured compatibility with management tools enables more effective software deployment, problem resolution, and helps us to meet mandated accessibility and security standards.
