Wellesley College does not specifically recommend any one brand of notebook or desktop computer. However, the computer manufacturers listed below are currently used by Wellesley College for our computing needs and our support staff are experts at supporting these products. Additionally, these manufacturers provide academic discounts that Wellesley College students, faculty and staff may want to take advantage of. These discounts are, in general, not specific to Wellesley College. Students should review the Wellesley College Student's Guide to Purchasing a Computer (PDF) before placing an order.

Microsoft Office and Adobe suite software are available at a very low cost to faculty and staff currently employed by Wellesley College.
- These Home Use Programs use the College's site license for the software
- You do not own the software yourself but are buying permission to use the campus license at home
- You may only purchase one copy, for one computer
- If you leave the College's employment, you are required to remove this software from your personal computer (this includes retiring faculty and staff, including faculty emeriti and President's Club members, since this license only covers those who are on the College's payroll)
- You download the software to your personal computer and install it yourself; for MS Office you'll do this using the information you are sent via email
