What kind of laptop do I need?

The Office of Information Technology (OIT) recommends that you have a laptop with either:

  • Windows computer - Windows 10
  • Apple computer - (OS) 10.14 or 10.15
Hard Drive: RECOMMENDED 256 GB or larger
Warranty: RECOMMENDED 4 year parts and labor to cover hardware issues during your time at SJU

*We do NOT recommend Chromebooks or Tablet devices.  

HSB Students

All Haub School of Business (HSB)  students are required to have the Windows Operating System.  If you are an Apple (Mac) user, your Mac can be upgraded by installing Windows Operating System. Instructions for doing so can be found here. If your Mac has the new M1 chip, it will NOT be able to run Windows. For support in installing Windows on a Mac, please contact the Technology Service Center.

HSB Graduate students are also recommended to have a headset with microphone for online Zoom sessions.

Office 365 and Virus Protection

All SJU students are entitled to Office 365 free of charge. Instructions for installation can be found here. Virus and Spyware Protection Software: Microsoft Security Essentials is free and students can receive support installing the software by visiting the Technology Service Center.

Students in Need

If you do not have a laptop and have a demonstrated financial need, please reach out to the Office of Student Success.  We want every student at SJU to have access to the technology they need to be successful in their academic endeavours!
