Campus Technology Support
Westminster supports both Windows and Mac computers. On campus, computers are equipped with Windows 10, the Microsoft Office Suite, multiple web browsers, and many more academic applications. The Information Services department staffs a support phone, 801.832.2023, 7 days a week that students may call for technical support. Information Services also maintains technology support resources including do-it-yourself instructions for common technical issues.
Student Laptop Requirements
All incoming students are required to have access to a laptop computer running, at a minimum, Windows 10 or Mac OSX 10.7.1+. At this time, tablet computers are not supported. With a laptop, students will be able to access Westminster Anywhere, a program allowing students to directly access files and academic programs, both in class and at home. Students can certify their laptops for use by visiting the General Computer Lab, located in the Giovale Library.
Computer Account Resources
Every student account includes an email address, 2GB of backed-up network storage space, Wi-Fi access, and access to academic software. Students also have access to Office 365, allowing them to use the Office Suite online or on their own computer. Residential students also have access to the RecNet network, which supports personal devices such as Xbox, Roku, AppleTV, and others. Informational sessions on computer accounts, Office 365, and how to set up RecNet are held during New Student Orientation. If you are unable to attend orientation, you may visit the General Computer lab for assistance.
