While it isn’t completely necessary, most students at Lesley do bring their own laptops to school. There is a pretty even distribution of both Mac and PC users, though the majority of Lesley’s Art Institute of Boston students owns Macs. All of the computer labs at Lesley are "dual-boot," meaning that they can either run Macintosh or Windows, depending on the user’s preference. In general, the computer labs are not usually too crowded, though during finals week, it can sometimes be hard to find an open computer. However, if this is the case, many of the classrooms on Main Campus are equipped with computers that are available for student use whenever a class isn’t being held.
The tech support team at Lesley, called University Technology or "UT," has the potential to be very useful, but oftentimes it's not. This is partly due to the fact that UT is not located on Main Campus, but has its offices in the basement of University Hall at the Porter Campus. Also, UT, while staffed with very knowledgeable individuals, has a very limited number of people working there. However, if you catch them at the right time, they can be very helpful when available. Lesley University offers two free wireless networks—Lesley-secured and Lesley unsecured. Both networks “work” on all campuses and in all dorms; however, as with most wireless connections, sometimes they can be slow or unreliable.
