Welcome to the SCI website and store

Welcome Class of 2018

The Student Computer Initiative (SCI) is a program that offers laptop computers that are specially configured for academic use at Princeton University, specially priced for Princeton students, and expertly supported by Office of Information Technology staff. The most notable benefits of an SCI computer are the convenience of on-campus technical support , the pre-installed software and Princeton-specific configuration, and the 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 e-mail 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.
