Undergraduate Computer Requirement for Students:
The university annually establishes baseline specifications for each entering class and several recommended configurations of desktop and notebook computer models (All are currently Windows-Intel platforms). Transfer students are subject to the requirement in place for the class level into which they enter. Students are encouraged to purchase one of the recommended configurations through NJIT's partnered vendor. Special academic and volume pricing makes these models available at significant discounts.
Complete information on the Computer Requirement (including more specific requirements for individual degree programs) can be found on the Information Services and Technology website at http://ist.njit.edu/compreq.
Campus and Student Life: Here at NJIT, your youngster will have the opportunity to get involved with nearly 90 clubs and organizations. More than 1600 students--including about half of the freshman class -- live on campus in the university's five modern, comfortable residence halls. If a student decides not to live on campus, he/she can always go relax or gather with friends at the Campus Center. NJIT is also a Division I school in athletics. Get an overview of campus life.
Campus safety is very important to us. The NJIT campus is served by a 66-member Department of Public Safety, which provides security 24 hours a day. NJIT police officers have full arrest power and patrol the campus by foot, bicycle, and in motor vehicles. Police officers are also available to escort students to parking lots or across campus during the evening and after normal business hours.
