Purchases of IT equipment and repairs

Professional purchases

Each IT order (software or hardware, including scientific setups), whatever the UNIL source of funding must be approved by the FBM IT Service (Si) before being completed. If you want to buy a new IT equipment (hardware or software) , please send us your request by mail to supportfbm@unil.ch, specifying your needs (model, configuration, use, etc.) or contact the local IT manager of your department. We handle the entire buying process, from the order to the delivery of the IT equipment installed as FBM standard at your workplace.


The FBM IT Service has defined minimum / standard configurations for purchase of hardware. Purchases are adapted to the needs of the user.

Use of private computer

In the exceptional case where you would not have access to a UNIL computer, it is possible to add your personal computer to the UNIL's inventory. To do so, please contact the FBM IT Service. Nevertheless, this initiative must be approved by the Director of the department, before being considered by the FBM IT service.

Private purchases

The University offers its community the possibility to receive discounts when purchasing private equipment (laptops) as well as software: List of discounts for private IT purchases (fr)

The Neptun program offers twice a year enables a reduction of 16 to 18% on every purchase. Whereas the Poseidondiscounts are available the entire year and offer a 12 to 13% discount (Poseidon discounts are not available when the Neptun discounts are open). Private purchases are not supported by the FBM IT Support, nevertheless we will gladly help you choose a product.
