3 College Freshman

Computers: Expect a lot of slow wireless here, but sometimes it works wonderfully. You just never know.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: The computers here work just fine. Our new printers are awesome and you can send documents to the printers from your room, and then print them out when you get to the printer.

4 College Freshman

Computers: Have wifi in every building, speed is quite good. We have computers in library, Center of Fine Arts, and Campus Center. It is really easy to print. We don't need to pay for printing (except we excess the limit)

3 College Senior

Computers: You definitely want your own personal computer. While they have labs that are open 24 hours, it's just not the same as being able to do your work in your own room or with friends. You get $8 worth of printing a semester, which typically is enough. You just enter your password or swipe your id card to print. I have a printer in my room and find that much more convenient than having to walk somewhere in the middle of the night or wake up early to make sure I get to the printer and make it to class in time. The network tends to run a little slow and occasionally crashes, but overall I've never had trouble getting something done that I needed to finish.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: Labs Never Get Too Crowded – I've never had a problem using a computer even during crunch times like mid-terms and finals. There are plenty of them in the library, the Center for Fine Arts and the computer science hall. They also have a few in the mailroom and the Haq Center and probably more that I've left out. They work great and since they're connected directly to the ethernet, the internet runs quickly and smoothly.

There are several computer labs on campus, including a 24-hour lab in the library and several labs for different disciplines, like the psychology lab. The mailroom has a bank of computers and a printer for quick printing and checking email in between classes. Other computers and printers are available in many academic buildings for students and professors. All computers are loaded with Microsoft Office and other programs for paper writing and other classwork. Despite all of the public computers, most students have laptops or personal desktop computers, and many bring their own printers, too.    

The whole campus is set up for wireless Internet access, and even many of the outdoor spaces can pick up a connection. Ethernet plug-ins are available in all dorm rooms and some of the lecture halls. The wireless network tends to be unreliable, but IT works to keep everyone online and the system working. IT will also fix any computer problems students might have with their computers. College email can be accessed on or off campus, and the Intranet Hanover portal is a great place to see what is happening on campus or access college services.
