University Standard Computer Hardware Configuration
To accommodate varying needs in administration, instruction and research computing, while avoiding excessive variability in equipment and software, University computing purchases are standardized on the Windows, Linux, and Macintosh operating systems.
The following standard hardware configurations must be used by University faculty and staff unless a departmental request for deviation from the standard has been approved by the Instructional, Administrative and Information Technology management team. An obsolence schedule is published annually regarding computer hardware no longer supported by IT. Please see University Policy 16, Computer Hardware and Software Policy, for further information.
If you are purchasing new computing hardware, Kettering University has approved vendors whom meet University technology standards.
