The computer labs on campus are fairly accessible, and most are open until 12 a.m. or 3 a.m. Although the wireless network can be found almost anywhere on campus, the speed of the network can be slow sometimes. However, the computers are constantly being updated with new software and run Windows 7. There are also multiple Mac labs located in some of the academic buildings.
Almost all students would agree that bringing a computer, a laptop specifically, is essential. Bringing a printer is not necessary, but it can be helpful when the printers decide to stop working 10 minutes before your paper is due. Basically, bringing your own is just more convenient—that way you don't have to leave your dorm room to get online or print out your papers.
