For Faculty and Staff

UNTHSC departments are individually financially responsible for computer and printer purchases. However, Information Technology Services (ITS) and the UNT System sets standards for these purchases. Although each department makes purchases separately, UNTHSC and the UNT System as a whole participates in procurement processes that harness the bulk buying power of the institution so that the best prices on standard hardware are made available to everyone.

Computer and printer purchases must follow the recommended standards.  Department’s needing computer and printer hardware different than the recommended equipment must consult with Helpdesk and Client Services.  This is done to ensure that the equipment is compatible with our infrastructure and can be supported by Helpdesk and Client Services. Helpdesk and Client Services will work with you to determine if an exception is needed, or if your non-standard hardware request would be covered under a UNT System Authorized Variance.

Please use the links to the right to review purchase options and purchase instructions. Contact the Helpdesk at 817.735.2192 or email helpdesk@unthsc.edu with any questions.
