Rowan’s Student Laptop Initiative

Technology pervades all aspects of our lives.  Rowan University wishes to prepare its students to be competitive in a mobile and versatile computing environment.  The University is in the final stages of creating a wireless-computing campus and highly recommends that incoming freshmen purchase a laptop computer to provide the most complete campus computing experience. 

The University has selected Lenovo as the preferred vendor for window's based laptops and Apple for their line of MAC OS based laptops. Lenovo will sell laptop computers specifically customized for Rowan students at competitive pricing. Apple will provide laptops to Rowan students based on Apple's current educational pricing. If purchasing a Lenovo, we recommend that you take advantage of this offer available only to Rowan University students.
