Student Laptop Recommendation

To prepare our students for a mobile technology workforce and to enhance the student’s experience within the campus community, Marymount California University has adopted laptop recommendations. Owning your own laptop will open endless possibilities for connecting to the Internet, your Marymount email account, Marymount’s Learning Management System (LMS), not to mention the ability to take online courses, take notes in class, participate in online discussion groups, conduct research and access course registration, class schedules, course syllabi and more.


Marymount has relationships with several vendors to provide discounted hardware and software. We encourage you to take advantage of the discounts they can offer. If you do not own a laptop and are thinking about purchasing one before you come to Marymount, we recommend using the sites listed below to shop for discounted laptops and software packages.


  • Microsoft Office 365 suite of applications is provided free for MCU students. Simply log into your MCU email and select apps for download.
  • Adobe software is also provided free for students. Please contact the Help Desk to gain access.
