Student Computing Initiative (SCI)

The Student Computer Initiative (SCI) is a program that offers laptop computers that are configured with pre-installed software for academic use at Princeton University, specially priced for Princeton students, and expertly supported by Office of Information Technology staff.

SCI computers offer the convenience of on-campus technical support, pre-installed software and Princeton-specific configuration, and 3 year warranties negotiated in the price of each computer.

We hope you decide to purchase a computer from the SCI program. If you have questions, feel free to send email to or call the OIT Support and Operations Center at (609) 258-4357 (258-HELP) to speak with a consultant. Consultants are available around the clock, seven days a week.
