Get a Computer

Built for You, Built to Last

UNM has developed computing standards that can effectively meet campus computing needs through a strategic partnership with Dell Inc. Make sure that you check with your Academic Program before buying a computer to ensure that you purchase a computer that will meet the requirements of your major.

The Dell Personal Purchase Program allows students, faculty, and staff and to buy business-class UNM standard computers for personal use. These systems are built to last and to meet the range of use cases found across all of UNM’s campuses including use in classrooms, labs, and offices. 

Make it Personal

Want to personalize your purchase, prefer a Mac or need a high-end computer for VR or other content development, data analysis, or gaming? The UNM Bookstore has education discounts on Mac and Windows computers and a wide range of accessories.

Many university applications will not run on a Chromebook, so we recommend that you do not think of a Chromebook or a Tablet as your primary device for your studies. Whether you choose a Mac or a Windows machine, we strongly encourage you to start with the university standards as a baseline configuration. Unsure what to get? Let us help.

A Laptop for Every Lobo

A computer is an important tool for education. If you don't have your own computer and are unable to get one, we still want you to be successful.

UNM supports short-term laptop checkout programs through individual departments, the Libraries, and UNM IT.

A limited number of laptops are available for long-term checkout to students with financial need.
