The ACE Student Computer Support Center is here to help


All students can request help with network connectivity, mobile email setup, Microsoft software installation, virus/Trojan horse issues, spyware/malware infections. Limited hardware support is also available for most systems.

Students who purchase a Dell, Lenovo or Mac system through the ACE Initiative program are also eligible for full repair service while the system is under warranty.

Computer Purchase

Fall 2014 Student Computer
Requirements and Recommendations

Each year, academic departments identify computer requirements by program or major. While it is not required that students purchase a computer through ECU, the Dowdy Student Stores computer department does offer online purchase of computers specifically designed to meet program requirements, including the Lenovo and Apple systems included in the ACE Initiative program. Other vendors include Dell and HP.
