4 College Sophomore

Computers: Wi-fi sometimes does not work very well.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: IT support are always available to help answer questions and fix technical issues. There are computer labs in at least two of the six academic buildings, plus the "quiet" room in library which supplies a lab as well.

3 College Freshman

Computers: The wifi stinks! It works sometimes... but it never works when I need to submit assignments online.

4 College Freshman

Computers: Computer labs are widely available. Wi-Fi is a hassle. Bring an Ethernet cord.

3 College Freshman

Computers: They have a few labs stationed around campus, you receive 500 free prints, there is a IT support group on campus that will help you fix wireless issues, etc. and fix computer issues within their abilities, because of the amount of students on campus its better to use an ethernet cord than wireless

Most students bring their own laptops and printers to campus. However, Berry does have approximately 10 computer labs on campus, two being Mac computer labs. Printing is free, despite what some may tell you; IT is now tracking the number of pages each student prints, but there is no current limit. Labs are hardly ever crowded, and they are all simple to use. Lab assistants are helpful for basic problems, and the Berry Information Technology Students (BITS) can walk you step by step through common computer problems, or you can bring your computer to their office to see if they can fix it. And they do charge—it’s upwards of $25 per hour, but there is a Staples near campus that may give you a better deal.

Berry’s wireless is decent most of the time, but tends to have the most problems during peak hours. To avoid this problem, make sure you bring an Ethernet cord; all dorm rooms are equipped with an outlet. An Ethernet chord is the most reliable connection at Berry.
