Buying a Computer on a Tight Budget

Thinking about purchasing a computer but don't want to spend a lot? Go green and get a tremendous bargain too by buying a computer from Temple's award winning Computer Recycling Center (CRC).


Using a baseline standard, the CRC staff refurbishes older computers and monitors retired from university service. The re-purposed equipment is made available for purchase first by departments for university use and then for faculty and staff for personal use. To see the items for purchase, go to the CRC website and click and log in to the Surplus Store.


If you have any questions, please contact the Help Desk through the TUhelp web site at or call 215-204-8000.
