Please check with the vendor that you bought it from. We recommend having your computer shipped to your home and discourage shipping directly to campus.
If I buy an iPad, do I also need a computer?
This is a matter of personal preference, however an iPad may not be a functional replacement for a computer depending on the applications and functionality needed for your program.
Does Fairfield University have a loaner program?
Fairfield generally does not provide loaner computer for students. Instead, it is recommended that lab computers are used. Labs are located throughout campus.
Should I buy the warranty?
Fairfield recommends purchasing an extended manufacturer warranty. The accidental protection plan is strongly recommended as it covers damage done by the user (i.e. spilled water, dropped, cracked screen, etc.). Apple does not provide accidental insurance, but look on website for two vendors that do. (SquareTrade, National Student Service)
