Used TCU Computers

Buying Your Old Computer

Faculty and Staff computers are currently replaced on a four-year cycle.  After the replacement of a computer, the employee who had been using the computer is eligible to purchase it from TCU.  If that employee elects not to purchase the computer, it is available for other employees to purchase. Arrangements to purchase your used computer after replacement can be made by contacting Information Technology at
