IT information for Parents

As a parent, other family or the person sending an incoming student off to university, you probably have a few questions to ask.

What kind of computer should my student bring?


Just about any computer with a modern (2 to 3 years old) operating system will work, Mac or Windows, even Linux will work.  Most students choose laptops for the mobility, but desktops are OK too.  If you do go with a laptop, get the extended warranty and damage insurance as they tend to get fairly beat up.   Our environment also works with most tablets and phones.  You can take a look at the Incoming Students and All Students section of our site for more detailed information.

If my student has problems, how do they get help?

We have a great Student IT Helpdesk to help out with just about any computing problem your student might have.

Can I connect when I'm on campus?

You can.  See our visitor section to get details on how to connect when you are on campus.
