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.

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. To review the current level of supported computer applications and web based systems, please visit Supported Software page.

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