5 College Sophomore

Computers: In today's world it's pretty convenient to have your own computer, especially as a graduate student when you don't live right on campus. The responsibility of getting your work done is of course solely yours so if you want to invest in a computer it certainly isn't a bad idea.

3 College Freshman

Computers: The computers available to us are okay. They are not the latest, but they are not very old. They function properly.

4 College Junior

Computers: Computers are great a Georgetown. We have a lot of them in the lab. There are hiccups with the system every once in a while but the overall quality of the wifi is very good.

3 College Junior

Computers: Macs and PCs available. Most classrooms have a PC for presentations. Public computers are in a few random locations around campus.

5 College Freshman

Computers: Computers and printing are available as well as tech support. Most/all students bring their own computers (laptops). I have a small HP printer in my room that is quite convenient.

There is a consensus among students that, if at all possible, you should bring a computer to campus. The labs (in dorms, the library, and some classroom buildings) get middling marks from users, who note that it can be hard to get a machine during midterms and finals. More than anything, the labs seem to be an added convenience to be used when you’ve got a few minutes in between classes. They are not, that is, adequate substitutes for a computer brought from home.

Georgetown's technology system is pretty good overall and definitely gets the job done. If you are in the business school, then you will have access to excellent technical support until 12 a.m. every night as well as free printing. The University will work with you if there is anything missing.
