As a general observation, the College has shared computer resources strategically located around the campus: in the Miller Information Commons (library), computer labs, the Fireside Lounge in the Student Life Center, and more. Some are open for the general student body, while others are only open to those with card access and a specific major. The computer labs and the library are rarely overcrowded, except around exams when students need certain programs and quiet to focus on final projects. Most students have their own laptops for convenience and to protect their own files. Professors allow laptops in most classrooms as long as students are taking notes and/or contributing to the class. Certain technically demanding majors require more, and students bring their own desktop PC.
Wi-Fi is available anywhere on campus, and the campus network can be accessed on any Champlain computer by using the same login as used on my.champlain.edu (webmail and WebAdvisor). All computers in the labs are high-speed and efficient, and printing is free. Champlain's "Champ Support" featuring Media Services and the help desk provides assistance connecting personal computers to the campus network, installing the College's antivirus software, and even doing repairs. They are very helpful and underutilized by students.
