College Sophomore

Computers: I don't use the computers at school. I have my own laptop.

4 College Freshman

Computers: The labs are nice but I prefer my own printer and computer to use whenever I want.

3 College Freshman

Computers: Not the best wifi, but it usually will work for me. I have never been in a pinch or have had it quit altogether.

3 College Freshman

Computers: Not enough, printing is the worst

4 College Freshman

Computers: Never had a problem with them, but they do give you a time limit. After a couple hours, they'll charge you for continued use on the computer.

With research papers and online classes, it would be nearly impossible to survive at any college if you didn’t have your own computer. Most Belmont students have a laptop, and many have their own printers, as well. However, if you don’t have a printer, you’ll probably get by at Belmont. There are plenty of computer labs around campus, and several of them have printers available for students—you just have to know where to find them. If you need something printed quickly and don’t have time to scout one of those labs, the printers in Massey Business Center and the library charge 10 cents per page. You won’t have much trouble with overcrowding in the labs because, again, most students have personal computers.

The library recently upgraded its computers to iMacs, and by logging in to one of these computers with your student ID number, you sign in to a one-hour session. If you need more time than that, just ask the librarians; as long as it’s not too crowded, they’ll be more than happy to give you a longer session. Belmont’s main campus—all dorms included—is completely wireless, and the network’s signal is pretty dependable. However, if you live in the on-campus apartments, bring an Ethernet cord or a router: The university network doesn’t extend that far. If you have any problems with your computer, from viruses to network connections, tech support is fantastic. Just give them a call, and they’ll get you back on track!
