WSU computers are pre-configured by our campus IT department with general purpose software that meets the needs of most users. For discipline-specific or course-specific programs, WSU also offers additional software that is available to download on any WSU computer at any time.
Do you have a reliable and powerful enough computer to succeed academically? Although graduate students are not required to participate in WSU's eWarrior Digital Life and Learning Program, it may be a good option for you, providing a powerful laptop, supported software, and full integration with all campus network services. You can opt into the program for a semester or a full year. You can also rent a laptop from WSU for shorter periods as needed. If you have a personally-owned computer, make sure it meets our minimum system requirements.
Current Minimum System Requirements: 1.4 GHz quad-core processor, 16GB RAM, 256GB hard drive, dedicated graphics card, two USB ports, web camera (internal or external), noise-canceling microphone (internal or external)

Find Printing Services
Printing services are available for all WSU students on both the Winona and Rochester campuses, whether you are using a personally-owned or WSU computer.
Web based printing allows WSU students to print from any device that has a web browser, as long as the device is connected to the warrior network. This is especially useful for graduate and part-time students who are not enrolled in our eWarrior Program (and do not have a school laptop). This being said, everyone is welcome to use web based printing!
