Find out how you can get desktop computers, laptops, notebooks and tablets.

Purchasing of computers is done through IT Services. Instructions on how to do this, as well as specification details and funding arrangements, are explained on the request, choose and order a desktop or laptop and the mobile phones and tablets sections of our website.

The contracts we use to purchase computers are approved by the Procurement Unit on the basis of value for money and legal compliance. Generally, we use two national contracts for purchasing computers:

  • DTP Group supply Hewitt Packard desktops, laptops and notebooks
  • Stone Group supply Apple tablets. Apple desktops and laptops can also be purchased via Stone Group, subject to the provision of a strong case for this requirement.

Note: The Microsoft Surface Pro tablet has the characteristics and functionality of a laptop, despite it being pitched as a tablet. IT Services therefore require a strong case to be made for the purchase of a Microsoft Surface Pro ‘tablet’, identifying specific technical and business requirements, in order to warrant going outside of the policy.

Any exceptions to University policy on the purchase of computers requires a strong case to be made to IT Services.
