FCP Computer Models

FCP faculty are eligible for one of the standard packages. Funds are not available to purchase other computer models or upgrade middle- or high-end computational equipment.

Several computer standard packages are available through the PRIME MarketPlace. The kits are clearly marked as FCP Models.   If none of the standard options meet your faculty’s needs, please contact

Note:  The equipment must be, and will remain labeled as, property of Princeton University. It must be returned to the University if the faculty member leaves the University. The equipment will revert to the central administration for disposal at the end of its useful life.

The Dell, Apple and Lenovo models can only be purchased by FCP Purchasers using the PRIME Market Place.  See FCP Purchasing instructions.

All FCP models are eligible to participate in The DeSC Program Managed Environments.
