The computer labs at Messiah are plentiful and well-stocked with ink and paper. The five residence hall computer labs are usually empty and incredibly convenient for finishing work close to home. The computer labs in the academic buildings tend to become crowded in between classes, but that can be resolved with a short wait or a quick walk to the next lab. It is certainly possible to rely entirely on Messiah’s computers, but almost all students bring laptops of their own. However, most students take advantage of the $24 printing credit per semester and do not bring their own printers.
The wireless Internet occasionally goes down in the residence halls, but this can usually be easily resolved with an Ethernet cable or a call to Information Technology Services (ITS). If ITS receives enough calls from residents in a certain building (to suggest that it is not just an issue on a personal laptop), they will reset the Internet connection and the problem will be fixed immediately.
