4 College Freshman

Computers: Get 20 pages free a day.

3 College Freshman

Computers: there is only one place to get free copies on campus. and it is all the way by the gym. if you have a class near parking lot B it will be a hassle for you to go all the way near the gym for your copy. i think they should spread free copies around campus. wireless is good but you can only use it if you are in a classroom or next to a building. if you are walking back and forth it is hard to stay with the excellent network.

4 College Freshman

Computers: I honestly love how they have computer and printing labs available for students, both on campus and in housing.

Computers: It gets the job done, more computers wouldn't hurt .

4 College Junior

Computers: The WiFi connection is fantastic on campus. There are many computers available for use, but it depends on the time of day and semester if there are enough available. For example,it more difficult to find an available computer around exam times and especially at the end of the semester. Printing can become expensive. However, the campus recently added a Printing Station. Each student is allotted 20 free pages day. This really helps. I really like the 10-minute print station. Easy to get in, print, and get out. Love it!

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Computers are one of CSUN's stronger suits. Labs are all over campus in each of the University's departments. Sometimes in the labs it can get crowded, but wait times are usually short. Plus, most students have their own laptops, which means they don't rely solely on the computer labs. When it comes to laptops and Internet access, students remark that the Wi-Fi is usually pretty reliable and available all across campus in different hot spots. Students also get 20 free print pages per day. 

The best word of advice is to do some research when it comes to computer labs. Many students go to the "popular" computer labs because these are the only ones that they know of, but with a little exploration, students can find best-kept-secret labs that not everyone uses and are more conducive for studying and working quietly (of course, if that's your type of study environment).
