Campus Computing Sites and Technology Services

Do I need to bring a computer to campus?

With the exception of Stamps School of Art & Design students who are required to purchase a specific computer package, students do not need to bring their own personal computer to campus.

As a member of the U-M community, you will have access to Campus Computing Sites, which offer more than 2,000 Windows and Mac machines, laser printers, scanners, and hundreds of learning, creative, and productivity software resources. In addition, you will automatically receive standard computing services, which includes email, printing allotments, online storage options, and more. Please visit the Information and Technology Services (ITS) website for more information about services that will be available to you as a student.

There are also several laptop loaner programs available for those who wish to use a personal computer, but are either unable to afford one or have concerns regarding using shared resources during the pandemic. The Michigan Undergraduate Laptop Program (ULP) provides laptops, free of charge, to selected incoming students that have been identified by the Office of Financial Aid. Sites @ Home is the ITS laptop loaner program in recognition of the technology barrier created by the pandemic and in support of a healthy, safe, and caring environment.
