What to Bring to Campus
Welcome to NCU! While it isn’t required, many students chose to bring a laptop or desktop. If you chose to do so, the IT department recommends the following specifications:
- Laptop or Desktop
- Windows 7 or 10
- Intel i5 processor or better, or an AMD processor from the last 3 years
- 4 gigabytes of RAM
- Antivirus software
- iMac or MacBook (Pro or Air) from within the last three years
- Ubuntu 16.04 or newer
Chromebooks and tablets alone typically are not sufficient for academic work.
Where can I print?
Students receive printing credit each term that can be used on a high quality color laser printer in the library. You are welcome to bring a printer from home, but many students enjoy using their library print quota rather than buying their own printer ink.
If you do chose to bring a printer, we do not recommend wireless printers. These typically don’t provide much security and the dorm network is shared with many others. If you already have a wireless printer, we recommend disabling the wireless functionality and connecting directly to the printer with a USB cable.
Free copy of MICROSOFT OFFICE for students
Students may download a free copy of Microsoft Office for their personal computer during their time at NCU. After you’ve received your NCU account, submit a help ticket via MyNCU to receive download instructions.
