In partnership with Dell, UB has identified configurable standards that include Optiplex and Latitude models, Precision workstations, servers, storage, printers and IT peripherals, supplies and accessories.
You may access Dell's educational pricing through UB ShopBlue or the UB Dell Premier Store. UB ShopBlue is the preferred method for placing online orders and may replace the Dell Premier Store in the future. Note that to order server hardware you currently must use the UB Dell Premier Store.
The Dell Store can be accessed by anyone with a valid UB appointment who needs to purchase computing hardware with UB funds. A UBITName and password are required.
If you are experiencing login issues, please contact the CSE administrative staff at email@example.com, or the UB ShopBlue System Support Team at 716-645-4500 or UBS-ShopBlue-Support@buffalo.edu
