DigiPen (Singapore) provides hardware and software that can meet the educational requirements for each course of study. It is possible to use only school equipment, but owning your own laptop will give you the flexibility to complete your work from any location, which may be necessary if you are unable to access campus facilities. DigiPen (Singapore) provides Wi-Fi and guest wired connections for laptop use on campus.
