While we were working at McMaster, many of us were in the habit of purchasing our computers and related supplies from the McMaster University Campus Store, also known as the bookstore, previously known as Titles. I recently visited the computer department at the store and discovered that many of the services offered to employees are also available to retirees. The computer department routinely works with customers to customize systems to suit every need and budget. They also supply service and technical support for their products.
The Campus Store computer department carries Apple, HP, Sony, Fujitsu, Lenovo, Toshiba and ASUS computers, as well as printers, software, accessories and supplies. If you are looking to purchase any of these items, it is worth getting a quote from the McMaster Campus Store. Although educational discounts are not generally available to retirees on Apple products, you may be able to take advantage of special educational promotions on other brands of hardware and software. For example, MURA members may purchase Trend Micro antivirus software for $13.50 per year.
The McMaster University Campus Store is a self-supporting organization, fully owned and operated by the University. The store contributes over $1.25 million annually in support of student success. Consider including it as an option when you are shopping around for computer equipment or software.
You can find out more about the computer department at the Campus Store by visiting their web site, sending an email, or calling 905-525-9140 extension 27873.
