013: Can I buy computer hardware at reduced prices through Mines?
The Mines Bookstore offers computers and accessories and may have occasional sales. Contact the bookstore at (303) 273-3113 or visit the bookstore online (http://mines.bncollege.com) for current offerings.
Various computer manufacturers may offer educational discounts. Dell, a common supplier of computer hardware on campus, offers discounts to students, parents, faculty, staff, and alumni for personal purchases through their Dell University program (http://www.delluniversity.com/). For institutional purchases of Dell products, CCIT has put together specific recommendations for computers, printers, and Microsoft Surface tablets.
Contact Mines Purchasing and Procurement Services (http://inside.mines.edu/Procurement_Services) for tax-free institutional purchases from other hardware vendors.
