Student Computer Guide

Buying a Computer? Let TopperTech help! Use this guide to help you with purchasing a computer. If you are still unsure about what computer to purchase, please contact us to get personal guidance from a TopperTech Specialist. WKU TopperTech does not charge for service, and we will support your computer, regardless of where it was purchased.


Step 1

Contact your Department of Major Study

Departments may require a particular kind of computer due to unique software used in that program.

Step 2

Check your Budget

Consider your budget and computer needs. For example, do not pay for a high-end graphics card if you will not do graphic-intensive work.

Step 3

Shop Around

WKU Store, Apple, and Dell offer student discounts. We recommend purchasing an extended warranty.
