Campus Device Standards

To provide a more consistent, sustainable, and supportable technology experience, Sacramento State has an established campus technology standard for all University-managed devices used by faculty and staff, or individuals utilizing campus labs or check-out devices.

Campus Technology Standards

For faculty and staff, the University supports an Apple and Lenovo laptop and desktop standard, which includes standardized packages of pre-installed software, system, and security configurations.

While students may purchase/use whichever devices they have access to, we recommend the following minimum standards in order to be compatible with University systems.

Benefits of standardized offerings include:

  • Compliance with CSU and Sacramento State Workstation Security 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
  • Consistently high-quality hardware components, ease in troubleshooting issues, and extended warranty support.

Technology Procurement Process

As part of technology procurement, campus utilizes a dedicated evaluation process - the Information & Communication Technology (ICT) Procurement Request Form - to help ensure that new technology equipment or software is accessible, secure, compliant, and works with campus infrastructure.
