How to Request to Buy Ferris Owned Devices

Effective April 3, 2023, with the exception of Emeriti, the sale of IT Equipment will no longer be supported. This includes all university-owned IT equipment such as computers, cell phones, monitors, printers, cameras, and scanners to name some examples. For Emeriti, the sale would need to be approved by the respective department to account for the cost of replacement.

This practice is being discontinued due to the cost to offer and refurbish the equipment has increased, and the residual value gained from trading in devices or sending them to our local recycling facility has increased. If you have questions or concerns, please contact us. We are grateful for your support and understanding.
