Purchasing Hardware and Software

Employee Software/Hardware Purchasing

If you work at Clark, one of the little known benefits is that we offer educational pricing for hardware/software that you can purchase for home. Clark is in partnerships with HP, Dell, Lenovo, Apple, Microsoft, Adobe and e-Academy to offer hardware and software at discounted pricing.

If you are looking to make a laptop or desktop computer purchase, we have hardware recommendations that we make available for our students to purchase for their few years at Clark, and can provide additional information to faculty and staff if you are looking for a solution similar to what Clark has provided as your primary university computer. The hardware recommendations is available at:

When you are ready to make a purchase, visit: to find links to not only the different hardware vendors we get discounts from, but a comparison matrix to compare similar computer configurations between vendors.

If you want to make a software purchase, visit: to get significant discounts on everything from Adobe Photoshop to Microsoft Office. These offerings are for home use and we recommend you contact the ITS Help Desk for University purchases, as those discounts can be even greater.

ITS is committed to helping you, and please note that all purchases are direct with each vendor; neither Clark nor ITS is processing your purchase(s). If you have any questions, need help or advice, please let us know.
