3 College Senior

Computers: At times it can be great and other times it can be horrible but it also depends on where you are on campus as far as wireless access is concerned. You need and Ethernet cord for the internet in the dorm because it doesnt work very well. Printing on campus is free unless you need to print in color. If your major requires a lot of papers to be typed its best to bring your own computer. Computer labs tend to get packed.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: Very efficient computer and network speed and reliability

3 College Freshman

Computers: The library computers are GREAT! Dormitory labs, however, always tend to lack in ink, paper, or even sometimes the printer itself is just broke.

Computers: Money might be an issue. When a computer breaks, it takes a while to fix it. Speed can be slow when a lot of people are on the network. Can only print 8 pages at a time.

3 College Junior

Computers: network constantly goes in and out at night

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Norfolk State has accessible computer labs that are managed by the Office of Information Technology. There are more than 30 computer labs available. The most popular ones are located in the library and the residence halls. Most students bring their own laptops to campus and access Norfolk State’s network. It is highly recommended to bring a computer to avoid crowded labs during peak hours.

Each lab has general guidelines and rules that are strictly enforced. Students must show their ID cards before entering the labs, cannot bring food or drinks, must turn off all cell phones, cannot talk loudly or use profanity, and are prohibited from uploading personal software on workstations. Any violation may lead to loss of computer lab privileges, including disciplinary action such as probation, suspension, or even expulsion.
