Office Supplies (Non-stocked): Most office supplies are currently purchased through Office Depot. An Office Depot catalog is supplied to all departments annually. Office Depot can also be accessed through their website: www.officedepot.com for sourcing product only. Note: Do not order office supplies through this webpage as you will not get the discounted pricing available to the College through our contract with Office Depot.
Stocked Supplies: The Purchasing Office maintains an inventory stock of certain items on campus including departmental letterhead and envelopes, forms, and telephones. There is also a selection of conference and meeting items with the Haverford logo (i.e. name tags, note pads, portfolio covers, pens and tote bags).
Orders for Office Supplies should be made via email to firstname.lastname@example.org before 2:30 pm in order to receive next day delivery. When placing your order for stocked and non-stocked office supplies, please identify the following:
Your identity: Name, Building, Room Number and Account Number.
Product information: Item number, Description, Quantity and Catalog Page number.
- Return of Office Supplies: Items received from Office Depot and Stocked Supplies can be returned within one week of purchase. The item(s) must be returned in its original packaging and in re-saleable condition. Please contact the Purchasing Office via e-mail when making a return request. Your department will receive credit for the returned items.

The Purchasing Office also assists with the purchase of furniture, tables and other related items for offices and departments. We maintain a library of catalogs and brochures showing a variety of products at various pricing levels. We can also do floor plans and recommend products that will best serve your needs. We maintain a list of competent vendors of these products. All purchases are generally charged to the originating department unless special funding has been allocated. For more information, contact Sam Williams.
