Most students who come to Ferris bring a laptop or a desktop computer with them. There are many different computers offered on campus, in buildings and at the library. Most of the time the facilities are not overly crowded, except when it comes around exam time when many projects are due. The staff who runs the facilities is helpful, and the computers are outfitted with all of the software and systems that any student would need. Also, they offer printing to the students at a minimal cost.
The tech support at Ferris is quiet helpful. They are available via e-mail or a phone call. If it is past their hours of operation, you can leave a message, and they will put in a work order when they receive it. Once the tech support has attempted to solve the problem, they will give you a call to make sure that things are working properly and will then close the work order. If you have any questions about the system or the problem, most will take their time to explain it to you in simple terms.
The network at Ferris is not the most reliable. Most of the time, access to the Internet on campus is very simple, following logging into Cisco. However, there are times when there are too many users and the system will not allow you to log in, keeping you off the Internet. However, Ferris is constantly working to prevent this problem from happening.
