Computers & Software for New Students

To best take advantage of our campus-wide network, the College requires all incoming freshmen to own a laptop computer.  William & Mary offers special pricing and a 4-year service warranty for laptops purchased through the Student Notebook Program.  These computers along with some accessories are sold through the William & Mary Bookstore.
