Purchasing a Computer

Dear Elmira College Student,

Below are updated Apple and Dell educational price offerings and information on the free Microsoft Office service for the 2015 - 2016 academic year. If you have questions, please contact the IT Help Desk at helpdesk@elmira.edu or (607) 735-1915. 

For Apple and Dell prices and more information on purchasing a laptop please go to the Summer Registration page

Buy a Laptop

If you plan to buy a new laptop for the Fall semester, we recommend making the purchase no earlier than May. Waiting until June or July is preferable because computer performance-price ratios increase with time. We do suggest ordering the computer before August to ensure that it arrives in time for the start of the academic year.

Free Microsoft Office Service for Elmira College Students

At no charge Elmira College students can download and run Microsoft Office on up to five Windows or Macintosh computers. In addition, they can download Office apps on up to five of their mobile devices: Apple iOS or Android. (Windows Mobile includes Office apps by default.) Students first register and sign in with their Elmira e-mail address to access their personal software page. The subscription is available as long as you are a current student.
If you have questions, feel free to contact the IT Help Desk at 607-735-1915 or helpdesk@elmira.edu.
