Computer Standardization Policy

Please view the computer standardization policy if you’re purchasing hardware for use by TU employees for their position.

University computers are standardized with limited exceptions. A primary setup allows for one (1) desktop computer with (1) external monitor or one (1) laptop with (1) docking station and (1) external monitor, as necessary.

We strongly encourage the laptop option to ensure consistent experience in occasional remote working environments.

Accessory items (keyboards, mouse, speakers, webcams, etc.) are at the discretion of the department.
