3 College Sophomore

Computers: they have many computer labs on campus. you only get a .50 credit for printing and it costs .5 a page which and it is annoying to always have to pay to print all the time. the wifi is not that great in the dorms at all times and overall the campus network is not very good

5 College Freshman

Computers: There are an abundant numbers of computers on campus. They have a couple in the main building and another building where students come together to socialize. They placed these computers in a reasonable location and students are using them.

3 College Junior

Computers: The Library closes at mid-night so if you want to stay up and do work you better have a computer.

2 College Junior

Computers: For the amount of money we pay for this horrible school, we should have Mac computers all over campus, yet we're still working with Dell software with un-matching monitors and broken keyboards, meanwhile all of our tuition goes to landscaping.

3 College Junior

Computers: Computer labs are satisfactory. When you are in a classroom the networks are reliable but if you get away from the building a little or go into a parking lot it is spotty at best. The need for a computer is greatest when the labs are full but I've only experienced not being able to use a computer once.

Barry University has many computers available. The main lab in Garner Hall has 75 computers, and the library offers more than 30. The library printers are always ready—it costs 5 cents per page to print, but each student receives 50 cents of free printing. Plus, most teachers accept e-mailed papers, which cuts down on the need for printing. Surprisingly, neither the library or the computer lab is ever full.

Most students have their own laptops, and wireless Internet is accessible throughout campus. Barry's wireless network is amazing—it’s always accessible, and there are few complaints about it. If something is wrong with your laptop, Barry's technical support center is always available, and the staff there knows exactly what it’s doing. If you need a laptop and have the funds to purchase one, the bookstore has a selection of new laptops waiting for you. This is one school where technology certainly rules!
