4 College Freshman

Computers: The new computers work great its good to see the update. the internet is kind of slow and doesn't work in certain rooms. the printing is fair i guess because you get free printing in certain spots but normal rates for when you can't get there.

3 College Freshman

Computers: I prefer using my personal computer, but the computers on campus are usable.

2 College Senior

Computers: There are not enough computers and printers. The Wi-Fi is bad as well, cannot get good service on certain floors and even on the floors that work sometimes.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: There are plenty of new computers in most labs and if you come at a certain time they will surely be empty. However in most cases especially during registrations none of the labs will have any room and you'll have students waiting outside, it gets very annoying.

3 College Junior

Computers: Hunter could use the funds to upgrade its computer access. Many of the labs are crowded and printing is difficult.

Each year sees progress regarding Hunter’s computer resources, whether it's wireless in the dorm or more computers on campus. It’s usually easy to find a free computer, or at least, the wait isn’t too bad. You can also borrow a laptop from the fourth floor of the library for free, and there are also computers available at the downtown dorm.

All buildings have Wi-Fi, and the Internet connection is usually fast. There are computer labs on the 10th floor of the West Building, on the second floor of Thomas Hunter, and on most floors of the library. Labs are equipped with Macs and PCs, so you can use whatever system you prefer. All computers usually have academic programs ranging from SPSS to Microsoft Word installed on them. There are also computers kiosks in the East and West buildings. In the Student Resource Center, you can print 300 free pages every semester, and you can scan documents for free in the library. The lab often has long lines and faulty printers, so if you're in a hurry, it's best to print elsewhere. It is also advisable to never save your work on a computer at Hunter, as all documents are deleted every day. For online registration for classes, it’s always best to either bring a laptop or to try and locate a free one in the library’s basement.
