Departmental Purchases of Apple Products

The ECU Dowdy Student Stores are able to sell Apple iPads® and iPad® accessories directly to ECU departments, and offer many benefits over traditional purchasing methods.  

Contact Dowdy Student Stores for specifications and current pricing. Visit in-person at the Main Campus Student Center store, or phone (252) 328-4360.  Many products are available in-stock, or through rapid procurement through Dowdy's computer department. 

Staff with departmental purchasing authority are still able to review pricing through PORT for Apple® products.  If using PORT, go to the ECU Catalog for ECU Student Stores to shop for Apple products. In the "search" field, type iPad.

Some of the benefits of departmental purchasing through Dowdy include:

  • Convenience of on-campus, face-to-face customer service and assistance from the Dowdy computer department
  • Hands-on viewing and demo before purchase
  • Easy payment by Procard or IDT with FOAP through the Student Stores
  • Immediate availability of in-stock models or rapid procurement of special order items
  • Accessories available such as adaptors, cases, stylus, etc.
  • University receives "commission" on sales, which in-turn assists ECU scholarship contributions
Note that Verizon® or AT&T® 3G (iPad2®) & 4G models require special order and take approximately 3-5 business days for delivery. Data plan set-up not arranged by Student Stores.

All regular purchasing guidelines apply. Purchasing through Dowdy is a service, offered for convenient and efficient purchasing, and on-campus assistance.

Owned & operated by East Carolina University, our profits are returned to scholarships and campus programs. When you shop with Dowdy Students Stores, you are helping to support ECU students.
