UL has committed to a blended learning strategy over the academic year (2020 / 2021), and this will place a requirement on students to purchase a good quality laptop.  

UL has reviewed applications that students might need to run on their devices, and we have identified the following categories and suggested devices. While the buying decision rests solely with the student, we would ask students to please be aware of these device specifications when purchasing a device, off-the-shelf devices come with much lower specs and have a very limited hardware warranty. Also, these are only guidelines and certain Schools/Department may have specific IT requirements.
