What kind of laptop do I need?

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

  • Windows computer - Windows 10
  • Apple computer - (OS) 10.14 or 10.15

It is in your best interest to purchase a warranty with your laptop to cover any hardware issues.  We recommend that you get a 4 year warranty so that your computer lasts throughout your time on Hawk Hill.

We do NOT recommend Chromebooks or Tablet devices.  

All SJU students are entitled to Office 365 free of charge. Instructions for installation can be found here.


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!
