5 College Freshman

Computers: you're given a lot of printing credits at the beginning of the year, and it's really hard to run out of them. bringing a computer is important though, and having a printer is key if you want to print things out conveniently and not wait for available facilities.

4 College Freshman

Computers: Computers and printing labs are all over campus; hard part is finding a printer with enough paper or ink.

3 College Freshman

Computers: There are many computer labs on campus, a lot of the computers have issues and the wireless internet goes on and off.

5 College Senior

Computers: I've had very few, poor experiences with Loyola's technologies. There were some times when the internet would drop but Loyola is known for having great accessibility via HoundNet wireless.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: There are a lot of computer labs on campus. Printing is okay but can be unreliable and unpredictable some times. There is wireless access throughout campus. At the residence halls there are times where connection is really bad even among several wireless networks

With more than 18 computer labs (all of which are open 24 hours), four cybercafés, and a wireless network, Loyola students always have computer access. However, during midterms and finals, finding an empty computer in the labs may be difficult. Some students complain about the network being too slow or having too many viruses, but it does serve its purpose. Students can connect to the network from their dorm rooms or labs to get their work done.

Loyola is connected to Groupwise e-mail, Moodle, and Webadvisor. There are computers all over campus and a lab in almost every dorm building. It's rare to go to a computer lab and not find an available computer, but it is more convenient to have a laptop to take around with you on campus. It's convenient for late-night studying, taking notes in classes, doing work on the quad or in the student center, or using during meetings with a professor. Macs are common on campus, but there are some students who do use PCs. Neither is required or recommended, and both work well with the network.
