Laptop Requirement

The Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering requires all incoming students to bring a laptop to campus.  The College recommends either the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon or the Lenovo ThinkPad P1 with memory of at least 16.0GB and the Intel Core i7 processor. Other laptops must functionally meet or exceed these specifications.

It is highly recommended that a laptop be purchased through Lenovo from the following sitewww.lenovo.com/rowanengineering.  You must create an account using your Rowan email address to register and subsequently access the site. You can select either the Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon (XXXX007637) or the Lenovo ThinkPad P1 (20XXS0QB00) in the Laptops tab. The laptops are preconfigured, and comes with a 4 year warranty and on-site support. Either laptop will meet your computing needs during your studies at Rowan. These are pre-configured computers that have been specially packaged for Rowan, and no upgrades are necessary.

If you are having difficulty with your Rowan account, you can go to id.rowan.edu for assistance.

The University now provides students with Microsoft Office through Office 365, more information can be obtained here: https://irt.rowan.edu/service-catalog/software/downloads/index.html#office
