3 College Junior

Computers: The computers themselves are decent. But the wifi can be terrible in certain spots around campus.

2 College Freshman

Computers: The computers on the library and classrooms work great. The wifi however doesn't, in dorms it is very slow and its easy to get disconnected unless you're in the lobby of the dorm then it is fine.

2 College Student

Computers: Most computers on campus are extremely slow and wi-fi moves slow. It's almost like it is old and needs to be replaced and it should never be as hard as it is today. The accessibility to campus computers are poor because the library is a long walk.

The computers on campus are thankfully up to date with the latest software that will allow typing documents, constructing figures and graphs, and being in sync with the new technology of our day. The ATM, Academic Technology Mall, located in the very attractive and up-to-date Harvey Library, supplies students with all the materials needed for everything from completing their essays for English class to composing a portfolio for a business class. There are computers on all of the five floors of the library. The only downfall is that the library is not open 24 hours. However, there is Internet access in every dorm room, and there is a technician located on campus to aid in repairs. Students are required to pay to print, but the pricing is reasonable. Internet speed is pretty good, but there are restrictions of what can be accessed through the University to prevent viruses and system crashes. Students can access the Internet from any building on campus, including the dormitories and the student center, through a wireless or Ethernet connection. The University provides a Hampton email for each and every student.
