Technology Purchasing

ITS assists with technology purchases including computers and software. We are able to offer you the lowest price option on Adobe software for use on Oxy-owned computers. 

Please submit technology purchase requests by creating a ticket using our service portal. We'll get a quote for you and send it back for your approval before placing the order. If you're not sure exactly what you need we'll be happy to talk through the options for you to figure out what would best meet your needs.

Adobe Software

For use with Oxy-owned computers: We have Volume License & VIP Agreements with Adobe that allow us to get the best possible pricing for Occidental College Adobe licenses. Pick a single product from their catalog or compare the Creative Suite options. Send your purchase request to the Technology Helpdesk by creating a ticket; we'll let you know the cost, and place the order for you once you approve.

For personal use: ITS does not purchase software for personal devices. For personal Adobe software purchases, your status as a current student or employee allows you to order Adobe software at a significant discount from Academic Superstore. Instructions on what you need to do to verify your current status is available on their website.
