Campus Device Standards

To provide a more consistent, sustainable, and supportable technology experience, Sacramento State supports a campus technology standard for all University-managed devices used by faculty and staff, or individuals utilizing campus labs or check-out devices. The current Windows device campus standard is Enterprise-level Dell’s in the Precision, OptiPlex, and Latitude lines.

Campus Technology Standards

The University supports an Apple and Dell desktop and laptop standard, which includes standardized packages of pre-installed software, system, and security configurations. Benefits of standardized offerings include:

  • Compliance with CSU and Sacramento State Workstation Standards
  • Computers that are configurable and compatible with information security tools and requirements, have regular security patching, and are ready for use across all enterprise campus technology services
  • Cost savings through negotiated pricing on select models
  • Consistently high-quality hardware components, ease in troubleshooting issues, and extended warranty support.

While students may purchase/use whichever devices they have access to, there are recommended minimum standards in order to be compatible with University systems.
