Faculty & Staff Hardware Standards and Software Licenses

UMass Lowell's IT group has worked with the university staff and faculty to develop a pool of standardly configured systems. These recommendations are based on cost, convenience and, in event of a failure, campus-provided IT support for your equipment on both Windows and Apple platforms. 

The standards for these computers are found in FY15 Faculty and Staff Hardware Standards (pdf).

Step-by-Step 

How do I purchase a computer from these hardware standards?

1. Place your order.

If you want to purchase a computer from the list of hardware standards, send an email to computer_configurations@uml.edu. Indicate which computer you want to purchase along with the speed type that will fund the purchase. The help center will place the order for you. 

2. Install your new computer. 

Once the computer arrives, the help center will schedule an appointment to install the computer and transfer all data from your old computer to the new computer.
