Tufts University has partnered with various IT vendors (e.g. Dell, Apple, and Microsoft) to provide faculty, students, and staff with an educational discount for hardware and software purchases. Visit the Tufts Technology Support Center discount page to access these deals.
If you are using Fletcher monies or plan on installing purchased hardware or software on a Fletcher computer, you need to follow these guidelines. All work-related software and hardware purchases should be approved by Fletcher IT staff to ensure that all applications conform to University software/hardware standards, and are purchased at the best possible price and through approved vendors. In some cases we may already have a license and the software can be downloaded free of charge.
All software must be purchased in compliance with applicable University licenses. We are legally obliged to maintain only a certain number of copies of software and need to track this information for audit purposes.
Any individual who makes an unapproved hardware or software purchase, and/or one that does not comply with university policy and purchasing guidelines, runs the risk of not being reimbursed and not being supported by Tufts University staff.
If you have any questions, please contact IT@Fletcher.
Tufts University participates in a Microsoft Campus Agreement which provides Tufts faculty and staff with low-cost access to a number of Microsoft products for use at home on work-related activities. These programs include, but are not limited to Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook).Please note, each software title and version can only be purchased once per faculty or staff member. For a complete list of the software offered through the Microsoft Campus Agreement and to access the Microsoft Download Utility, please visit TTS’s Microsoft Office Work At Home page.
