Technology Requirements

To ensure you can actively engage in your course work at the Newhouse School, you will need to have access to equipment that meets the following requirements:

Note: Students who enroll in production-level courses (e.g. AR, VR, Photography, Design and Video Editing) tend to have portable computers with screens no smaller than 15″, equipped with 32GB of RAM and a 512GB solid state drive.

If you are looking to purchase a new computer we encourage you to go through the manufacturer (e.g. Apple, Dell, HP) or the SU bookstore.  

When purchasing a new computer it is recommended to invest in the manufacturer’s extended warranty coverage to provide phone support and repair service options while at school.

Students are also encouraged to consider obtaining personal belongings insurance coverage for personal property and any equipment in their possession. Please refer to the university partner Haylor, Freyer & Coon, Inc for additional information.
