Emerson IT Help Desk

Computer & Tech Purchasing for Staff & Faculty

For Windows/PC purchases: We have added bundle options for easier ordering on Workday through the Connection punch-out page.  If you have any questions on ordering for Dell/PC, please contact us directly for a consultation.

Note: If you are making a computer purchase for personal use (non-Emerson funds), please see more information at Purchasing a Personal Computer.

Hardware Standards

Below is a listing of standard computer hardware that has been determined suitable for the Emerson College work environment. If you have a specific need outside of the below standards, please contact the Help Desk at helpdesk@emerson.edu for a consultation or to request a quote. 

Purchasing Process

All items listed below are available through the vendor catalog, which is accessible to approved purchasers through the supplier website on Workday. If you do not have access to the vendor catalog, please contact Procurement Services.

Be aware that some computer hardware will show up in searches through Amazon, but it is not approved for campus use. You will know it is a restricted item if you see the words "Company Restricted" at the top of the webpage. Please only purchase approved technology from the appropriate vendors as indicated below.

Once you've made your purchase, all new computer equipment should be shipped to the mailroom, and brought to the Help Desk first. Once received, we will reach out to you for details on its use and destination. For computers, we will configure, tag, and install management software, security tools and encryption, and in the case of mobile devices, a secure pin. We will contact you when it is ready for deployment or pick-up. If you receive the equipment to your location before it reaches the Help Desk, please let us know, or bring it by Walker 404 so we can prepare it for you.

In your usage of your new device, we require that you comply with the Data Classification Guideline.
