Computer Purchases


All computers must be purchased through the technology solutions partner approved by Information Technology. The current University partner is CDW-G.


  1. Request CDW-G Account. The prospective computer purchaser will request a CDW-G account. Accounts will only be approved for individual email addresses, not departmental or group addresses.
  2. Purchase the Computer(s) through the Pepperdine CDW-G Portal. You must use a Pepperdine CDW-G account and the official Pepperdine CDW-G portal (account 419475 will be listed on all quotes, invoices, and transaction receipts).
  3. Request Computer Setup. Once the computer arrives, submit the request to set up the computer.


Your University CDW-G Account

Important things to know about your CDW-G account:

  • Your username will be the same as your Pepperdine NetworkID; the email address will be your Pepperdine email address. No group or departmental emails can be used.
  • You may not reuse or share your passwords. Refer to the Computer and Network Responsible Usage Policy and the Strong Passwords Policy.
  • Confirm you are using the correct CDW-G instance by verifying that account 419475 will be listed on all quotes, invoices, and transaction receipts.
