Computing Services

All incoming undergraduate students are required to have a laptop computer readily available to them with no exceptions. Information Services annually recommends specific hardware and software laptop configurations that meet or exceed these technical standards. Visit the website at for specific information on the most current program. By selecting the recommended laptop, students will receive exceptional service and support both on and off campus. Students who elect to bring their own laptops to campus (other than the recommended one) also will be afforded technology assistance often of a less comprehensive nature due to the many possible variations of alternatives. Ultimately, it is the responsibility of the student to perform in the classroom.

Although laptops meet the vast majority of student needs, for those disciplines that require more specialized hardware or software, the university has more than 500 computers in various computer laboratories and public areas throughout the campus. The university maintains a secure and advanced data network that connects all university computers on all three Quinnipiac campuses. Students, faculty and staff are able to access this secure network through wired and wireless access. Wireless access is found across all three campuses, including the residence halls, classrooms, athletic fields and public areas.
