Undergraduate Student Support

Babson is entering its twelfth year of providing laptops to students. During this time, we have partnered with Lenovo, the leading vendor of business laptops and a leader in the adoption of laptops in higher education. ThinkPads are known for their durability, high quality, and excellent support. This is what allows us to make sure your laptop will be there when you need it. Babson provides you with the laptop as a learning tool. For it to be effective, you need to know how to use it. Your professors will help you with this in class, and the IT Service Center also is available to answer questions. The best way to learn about your laptop is to explore. Your laptop can be a great aid to your studies, and it’s beneficial to take a little time and get to know it. Below you will find both the Undergrad Quick Start Guide (a .PDF that details the services of the IT Service Center) as well a PowerPoint Presentation on technology at Babson (Ugrad Technology Presentation 2011).





Graduate Student Support


Babson students can purchase computers at a discount through the Personal Purchase Program. For details, click HERE. Machines purchased from the MBA Purchase Program are eligible for both hardware and software support by the IT Service Center. Limited walk-in support is provided at the Service Center for laptops that were not purchased through Babson’s MBA bundle purchasing program. Due to liability concerns, the IT Service Center staff cannot repair laptops that weren’t purchased through Babson. We recommend you contact the retailer or the laptop manufacturer; additionally, we can refer you to a third-party service provider. Service Center staff can assist you with issues you may have in any of the computer labs on campus. The IT Service Center is in 220 Horn Library. Below you will find the Grad Student Quick Start Guide (a .PDF that details the services of the IT Service Center) as well as two PowerPoint presentations (one for PC, one for Mac) that go over the use of technology at Babson.
