All PLU departmental purchases must be coordinated through User Support Services. We will work with numerous vendors to find the best price/value for the University and get back to you with a quote for the equipment. Please send purchase requests to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also contact us at 253-535-7525 for more information.
Note: We provide service and support for equipment purchased only through our department and not by other means, e.g., directly from a vendor or business.
It is our practice to purchase only computers and printers that are Energy Star compliant and/or have EPEAT certification. Each of the choices below are rated Energy Star Gold. More information on EPEAT can be found here.
