3 College Junior

Computers: There are a good number of computer labs on campus, but the speed and reliability of the network are not always the greatest.

3 College Junior

Computers: Everything is pretty average. There are plenty of places to print on campus and there are a few computer labs around campus but only two public ones (that I know of).

3 College Junior

Computers: Many labs and available printers but you must pay for every print/copy. There is only free printing for Engineers

4 College Sophomore

Computers: The wi-fi is pretty slow, but they are working on improving it and it's not as bad as most people say it is, I've never had much of a problem.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: The amount of computers available is fine, but the wifi in my dorm is very slow, making it hard to research for homework, etc.

In comparison to big state schools and high-powered private universities, Gonzaga's computer network may seem rather primitive. However, it is making slow but sure steps toward acceptability. The computers have gotten updated, but there are still some old dinosaurs around campus that, despite being ancient, get the job done. Both Macs and PCs are represented, too.

Most students have laptops, as desktops are rarely used. If students need access to a University computer, usually the labs aren't too crowded, except for during stressful times like midterms and finals. On the plus side, some of the computer labs are open 24 hours, which is especially beneficial to students who have busy schedules. In terms of the network signal, it's hit or miss. Sometimes it can be very slow and frustrating, while other times it can be strong. Wi-Fi is another area with which students are often frustrated.
