Student Laptops 2014

Over the past 10 years, the Laptop Program has been a core component of DePauw's strength in integrating technology into teaching and learning. To ensure you are equipped with the tools you need for an optimal learning experience, all students entering DePauw are required to have a laptop computer and a copy of Microsoft Office.

To meet the laptop requirement, you may purchase one of our Preferred Systems or bring a system of your choice based on our hardware recommendations. To meet the Microsoft Office requirement, a current version of the software is necessary.

Preferred systems

The University has partnered with Apple and Hewlett Packard to offer several systems that we recommend. Learn more about these computers and how to order at DePauw Preferred Systems

Hardware Recommendations

If you plan to purchase a system of your own or bring one that you already own, you just need to ensure that it meets some basic specifications. You can find that information at Hardware Recommendations.


All students are required to furnish their own copy of Microsoft Office. Learn more about the current version of Microsoft Office and how you can order online at Software Requirements.


At the Technology Service Depot, which is located in Eli's Books, DePauw's Bookstore, warranty certified computer technicians are available to provide hardware diagnosis and repair services for student owned laptops. Learn more at Technology Service Depot.
