Supported Hardware

Printer-friendly version

Establishing standards increases the University's ability to maintain proficiency in the procurement, installation, maintenance and life-cycle management of its IT systems and resources. Our Client Support Office is a Dell, HP, IBM, Macintosh and "A Plus" repair service center.

We provide limited support for all personally-owned equipment, which includes, but is not limited to desktops, laptops, and mobile devices (such as tablets and smartphones).  Limited support means that ITS will make a concerted effort to provide assistance.

Below are the minimum requirements for supported computer hardware. To view University-offered standards for University use go to Department/Organization IT Purchases.
