Bring Your Own Device

Mount Union’s Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) initiative allows students to bring their own personal computing devices to campus while having the ability to access all of Mount Union's resources. Beginning with the incoming class in the 2018 Fall Semester, all Mount students will be required to have their own personal computer to use on campus to complete academic assignments. The majority of students bring their own computers to campus already, but only recently has technology allowed us to implement equipment that allows students to fully access University resources from their own personal device. The University has created a virtual computer lab that will allow students to access campus core software from any browser on any device at any time. Students will be more comfortable on their own device, with applications set up according to their preferences.

The Office of Information Technology has set the following minimum requirements to assist individuals in selecting a personal computing device for campus use:
