Buying a Computer with College Funds

Note for ETF Fund users: Those wishing to purchase computers with an ETF (Equipment Trust Fund) index, should contact [[support]] for a quote.  After obtaining a quote, the purchase can be made through Procurement Services via eVA by the requestor.  Information Technology is no longer able to accept "bill backs" for ETF purchases.


Special pricing is available for William & Mary faculty and staff who wish to use institutional dollars or grant funds to purchase computers from Dell. 

Standard models (Standard Models are our standard lease models), can be purchased through Request IT

If a department is interested in purchasing a non-standard model, please proceed to Request IT and fill out the Technology Procurement Review form.  An IT Technician will contact you and work to design a system that meets all of your needs.  


Please login to and create your shopping cart, then proceed to check out. The IT approval for Apple products takes place during the BUYWM approval process. No need to contact IT prior.  Please remember we do require Applecare be purchased on all computers (three years for laptops and four years for desktops). Airpods & Powerbeats are not allowed. No headphones that enter the ear canal are allowed. This IT approval process only applies to Apple products. All other items still require the standard IT approval.

Other Computers

Departments who desire to purchase a computer from another manufacturer please proceed to Request IT and complete the Technology Procurement Review form.  Departments will be required to justify why a non-standard manufacturer is necessary.
