While the computer of choice for many students is trending toward Macbooks, before you head out to get a computer for your student, some of the colleges have specific requirements that differ from general recommendations. Click here for the individual college and degree program hardware and software requirements. However, if you do decide to purchase a MacBook, make sure that you have your student ID with you for a discount. You may find that a Dell, Microsoft Surface Pro or HP may better serve your student’s needs. Microsoft Surface has a great price, any hp is great. If you want to make a little more of an investment, the Apple Macbook Air and Apple Macbook Pro are highly recommended. A lot of students also bring tablets/ Ipads to class and are great for note-taking.
Individual college and degree programs may have requirements that you may find better with a Dell, IBM, or HP computer. Most are listed on the various sites. Listed here is a connection to the UNF ITS Service Catalog. The ITS Service Catalog defines and categorizes all information technology services provided to UNF students, faculty and staff.
On the UNF campus, the main place to print your student’s work is at the Thomas G Carpenter Library. The library has many resources, areas to study and printing available. Cost for printing in color is .25 and .09 for black and white. Students can use their Osprey Card for the cost of the printing. Of course, if your student has their own printer connected to their laptop, that can be used as well.
Your Osprey Card is your official identification as a student. This multi-function card is used for many different things on campus. Incoming freshmen will get a chance to get their Osprey Card during orientation. For information about the card or what to do if it is lost or stolen click here.
