Office Supplies

Staples Advantage

Staples is the CSU system-wide contractor for office supplies; all purchases for office supplies for CSULB departments should be made through Staples unless otherwise approved through the Purchasing Office.

Staples offers low contract pricing on a large selection of office supplies, toners and ink cartridges, recycled products, and technology supplies. Staples provides easy on-line ordering and prompt desktop delivery.

Access the Staples Advantage interface via your Single Sign On (SSO) account. If you do not see the icon, you will need to complete a Service Provider Activation Request form requesting Staples service to be able to browse and purchase items.

Staples also offers a CSU Employee Discount. Please contact Angelina Escalera in Purchasing for more information.

CSULB encourages sustainable business practices, therefore, we do not encourage ordering paper catalogs unless absolutely necessary (ex. individuals who do not have easy access to the Internet). If required, a paper catalog may be ordered by using Staples Item # 1204574.

Important Delivery Information

There are limits to Furniture purchases and other items requiring installation or service. Those items should not be purchased through a Staples Advantage profile. Please refer to How to Purchase to Pay for purchasing Furniture or services that will be performed on-site Requiring a Binding Agreement or Insurance.

It is recommended that you save this site as a favorite for future reference.
