When purchasing computers and computer related equipment at Queen's University, the Queen's Campus Computer Store (CCSS) should be your first port of call. CCSS services the technological procurement needs of faculty, staff, students and alumni of Queen's University. CCSS usually offers substantially reduced prices on computer equipment and related items compared to off-campus suppliers because of their reseller status, allowing competitive pricing and wide range of stock. As an integral part of Queen's University, CCSS is also able to process orders through the university's finance system, speeding the payment process and reducing back office costs. Purchase Orders and/or multiple quotes are not required when you purchase through the Campus Computer Store.

The Computer Store is located on campus in Dupuis Hall and is much easier to access than external suppliers. Service for your hardware is offered through the Service Centre in the basement level of Stauffer Library.
