Review Technology Requirements

Students enrolling at Concordia must have access to a computer that meets Concordia University’s technology requirements. An acceptable device is one that has connectivity on a high speed internet network, is capable of running a supported operating system (view specifics here) and features both a webcam and microphone. Most devices sold within the last two years will meet these requirements.

Concordia is one of the first universities to partner with Microsoft to license Microsoft Office for all students. This software will be available at no cost to students and the license allows installation on up to five devices owned by the student.
