IT Marketplace Policies

Recommended Computers

The most important technology that you will need at Liberty is a computer and Liberty’s IT Marketplace offers several kinds of computers depending on what you want and need for your classes. Liberty has partnered with Dell, Lenovo, and Apple to offer students discounts on computers from all three manufacturers.

Recommended Hardware Specifications

Students are also able to bring their own computers from home to use on Liberty’s campus. If you will be bringing your own computer, we recommend the following hardware specifications so that you can comfortably run multiple applications as well as take full advantage of Liberty’s network:

· i-Series processor (i3, i5, i7)
· 4 GB RAM
· 120 GB hard drive
· 256 MB of video memory
· Wireless-N is recommended, but not mandatory

Recommended Operating Systems

  • Windows 7/8

Recommended Software

  • Microsoft Office
    • 2010 or 2013 (Windows)

Liberty has also partnered with multiple software vendors to offer students great discounts on some of the software that they need for their computers, too. The Microsoft Office suite (Word, PowerPoint, Outlook, Excel, Access, OneNote, etc.) is available at a substantial discount from the IT Marketplace, along with much of the software that is required by individual classes in a variety of majors.

Warranty & Repair Information


All recommended Dell and Lenovo bundles purchased through the IT Marketplace come with the option to purchase a manufacturer's warranty (valid up to 4 years) and are eligible for on-campus service and repair at the IT HelpDesk for the entirety of their warranty. All Apple computer purchase's have the option of choosing no warranty or 3 year manufacturer's warranty that is eligible for on-campus service and repair at the IT HelpDesk for the entirety of their warranty. 


We are also able to perform certain hardware & software repairs on Dell, Lenovo and Apple laptops that were not purchased through Liberty’s IT Marketplace, but this service depends on the type of warranty, damage, and other factors.
