Apple products

UBC IT is able to provide price quotes and order the full line of Apple products. If you wish to order Apple products through UBC IT Desktop Services, please begin the process by creating a ticket to capture your requirements and track your request. Once the ticket is created, we will follow up with a price quote, order your hardware (once approved), configure, install, and deploy the product.

Note: All apple products cannot be returned or exchanged once orders have been placed.
Depending on your selected configuration, the delivery and installation of your order may take up to four weeks upon receipt of Journal Voucher(JV)

Note: All purchases are subject to 7% PST and 1.65% GST.

For UBC clients who currently are not supported by us, the agreement allows all Faculty and Staff to order directly through Microserve with the full educational pricing discount. Visit the Apple site to identify what you want and then contact Microserve at orderdesk@microserve.ca to place your order.
