Laptop Requirement

Orders due January 2

At William & Mary we require all incoming new students to have access to 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 an assortment of laptops and accessories including recommended Apple and Dell models. Purchasing the W&M IT-recommended Dell laptop through the Bookstore means your computer comes with a 4-year warranty, including coverage for accidents, and can be serviced directly on campus through the W&M IT Technology Support Center (TSC), located in Rm. 201 of Jones Hall. The Bookstore also offers a full support Apple store and guarantees to have in stock the recommended Apple model.
