Office Supplies

Effective October 1, 2013, UT Arlington’s exclusive office supply provider is Today’s Business Solutions (TBS), an OfficeMax partner and certified HUB vendor. All UT Arlington departments can order supplies for desktop delivery directly from TBS website at complete the ‘Username or Password Request’ under QUICK LINKS in order to receive University pricing.

UT Arlington will participate in a contract with TBS through the UT System Supply Chain Alliance (“Alliance”). This new agreement will provide UT Arlington with significant savings on all office supplies with remarkable savings on copy paper and toner cartridges. TBS and the Alliance have been able to negotiate “Big Deal” pricing directly with Hewlett Packard on OEM toner cartridges.

TBS has a wide variety of office products and services available to meet the administrative needs of your department.

Additionally, in an effort to reduce our carbon footprint and to control vehicular traffic within the campus community, office supplies will only be delivered on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
