HP is one of the leading laptop manufacturers in the world. The company releases lots of different devices every year, from top-of-the-line devices like the Envy 13 to its budget workhorses and Chromebooks. There’s even a dedicated gaming-focused category of devices, known as Omen.
But laptops certainly aren’t the only product HP makes. The US firm is also known for desktop PCs, monitors, printers and many other accessories, all of which could be useful for students. To reflect that, HP has student-specific deals across its full range of products. Here’s everything you need to know.
Does HP offer a student discount? How much is it?
HP has significant student discounts in both the US and UK, but they vary slightly depending on where you’re based.

If you spend $999 or more on selected Envy and Spectre devices, you’ll get an extra 5% off when using the code ‘ESNBDT5’ at checkout. Should your purchase total $1,399 or more, this becomes 10% off with the code ‘ESNBDT10’.
Even when there’s not a sale on, there are still “everyday discounts” of up to 40% available.
In the UK, the HP Student Store is offering the following discounts this year:
- Up to 15% off laptops
