Information Technology supports one computer and one display per regular employee. 


Lesley University provides a standard model of computer across campus.  Your supervisor will work to determine your platform needs (Windows or MacOS) and form factor. A legitimate business use case for an Apple computer must be made.  Familiarity with a Mac or past usage of a Mac does not constitute a justification.


Regular employees are defined here as core faculty and staff. Adjunct faculty and other workers such as students (work/study, Lesley Work Program, graduate interns, graduate assistants, etc.), employees of other organizations under contract to Lesley, temporary staff, and volunteers are not considered "regular" employees for the purposes of technology allocation and support.

An additional computer may be issued to a regular employee if it is deemed essential to perform his or her job functions. A desktop computer may be issued to a temporary employee if s/he works full-time and a computer is deemed necessary by the supervisor to perform his or her job responsibilities.

Each department is allowed additional desktop computers to be shared by student workers. The number of computers allotted for student worker use will be determined on a case-by-case basis. Student employees are not issued laptop computers.


The following computers are available as part of the standard models supported by IT.  A special order system may be ordered from HP, however these systems are built to order and can take 4 - 6 weeks to procure.  iPads are not available as a laptop or desktop replacement through the IT capital purchase process, however departments can purchase these devices using department funds.
