Fox Information Technology


Laptop Specifications


Most business courses use technology in and out of the classroom. Any student who is serious about a career in business needs to use the technology tools used in business today.

Though the Fox School does not have a formal computer requirement, we strongly recommend that students purchase laptops while at Fox. Students with laptops can use wired and wireless connections in several classrooms and labs, and in “Wireless Zones” around the Fox School and at locations throughout campus. The Temple University Help Desk supports Microsoft Windows XP, Microsoft Vista and Macintosh Laptops as well as Windows 8.
