The Department recommends that students plan to upgrade their laptops over the course of their time at UCONN to compensate for technological advances. Students are encouraged to buy laptops and software from the University Co-Op’s Technology web site. It will provide students with warranty and repair services for Dell, Apple, Sony, Lenovo, and Toshiba laptops.

If students have any questions about hardware requirements they are encouraged to contact their advisor.
