Supported Computer Products
The Office of Information Technology regularly reviews and disseminates recommendations for institutionally-owned computers. These recommendations help limit training and support costs, make it possible for people across campus to work together and ensure access to the campus network. The Office of Information Technology is unable to provide support for computer systems that do not adhere to these recommended standards.
Individual units may have requirements for additional specialized software, but should make separate arrangements for providing support for these applications through licensed service agreements.
