Any NEW desktop or laptop computer (PC or MAC) should meet the recommended requirements for Mansfield University Students.
PC's (Desktops & Laptops):
We recommend that your new PC have, at a minimum, Windows 10 Home Premium. If your PC comes with Windows 10 Home Basic or Windows 10 Starter, we recommend you consider upgrading those versions. This is a recommendation, not a requirement.
If your purchase a PC with a Linux based OS such as Ubuntu, or the new Chrome OS, CT will not guarantee any level of service on those devices.
A new laptop PC should have both wireless (WiFi) capability, and have an Ethernet jack. On a desktop, WiFi is optional.
Any new Mac purchased will contain the latest OS and will work fine on the campus network.
Printing is available for any student device using our PaperCut Mobility client install. You can download and install the client from within the MU Printing portal and selecting the "BYOD Client Install" option on the left pane. You must be connected to the Mounties Mobile wireless to use the campus printing function.
If you wish to supply your own Ink-jet or laser printer, please do so. We do not allow wireless (WiFi) printers within the residence halls as it interferes with our wireless access. Please only connect your printer via USB cable to your computer.
