Computers are seemingly everywhere at DePaul. There are labs of various sizes and atmospheres in every building on campus with generally enough computers for the students who need them. The labs in the library are ideal for that stressful crunch time during finals because they are almost always silent, and there are cubicles around each computer, which gives students more privacy than they would get in, say, the computer lab in the Student Center, where music is playing, the big game is on the large TVs hanging from the ceiling, and other students are milling around, chatting, and eating. There are also classrooms on both campuses with computers built into each desk.
While the University provides a sufficient number of computers in various locations on campus, it is still recommended that you bring your own laptop. This will allow you a lot more freedom in regards to when and where you want to study, and it also ensures that your work will be easily accessible later, as it is impossible to save documents onto DePaul network computers. Plus, every building on campus has wired and wireless Internet, so it’s easy to access the Internet with your laptop. DePaul's wireless network generally never fails but is sometimes down for maintenance. Like at most colleges, every DePaul student is assigned a University e-mail address, but most students change their preferred e-mail address to a personal account.
