At William & Mary we require all incoming new students to purchase a notebook computer. A laptop just makes it easier for you to stay connected with classmates, professors and administrators no matter where you might be on campus.
The William & Mary Bookstore carries a Dell laptop recommended by our IT department as well as an assortment of accessories. Purchasing the recommended Dell laptop through the W&M Bookstore means your computer comes with a 4-year warranty, including coverage for accidents, and can be serviced directly on campus through the IT department, located in Jones Hall.
Are you an Apple user? Apple products and accessories at educational pricing are available at the Tech Store located in the W&M Bookstore or online at Apple.com.
Do you already have a computer that you plan to bring to campus? Information Technology recommends that all computers have at minimum:
- Intel i5 processor or higher
- 256GB hard drive or higher
- 8GB of RAM or higher
