More Information about the Student Technology Center

In a typical academic year, the center hands out over 20,000 equipment loans, maintains and repairs many student computing devices (phones and tablets included) and manages 12 printers and five student labs.

Whitman Technology Services listens and responds to student needs. In 2022, the Center upgraded the undergraduate computing lab with new all-in-one computers and undertook a comprehensive project to upgrade the technology in the classrooms and team rooms, including providing up to 120 laptops students can check out for daily use.

If you have questions about the technology you will need while at Whitman, you can find answers here. We also encourage you to review our computing recommendations page to see what we believe will best suit you as a Whitman student Packages are available for purchase through the Syracuse University Lenovo Online Portal.

Please note that while we make every effort to support Macs, Windows is still the standard in the corporate world and is required by many classes in our curriculum, leading us to strongly recommend that students bring a Windows-based laptop.

We sincerely hope you find this information helpful. If you have any questions about student technology at the Whitman School, don't hesitate to contact us by email at or by phone at (315) 443-2342.
