3 College Senior

Computers: I bring my own laptop to class even if I have class in a computer lab. The computers are outdated and a little slow sometimes but otherwise they work pretty well.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: We have wireless access. The school offers either a Mac Book or I Pad for students coming to the schools. I know that certain exceptions apply, so most of us on campus have their own computers and I don't really rely on the schools labs or printers.

1 College Junior

Computers: We use Mott Community College site but we are not allowed to use their equipment.

2 College Senior

Computers: Very Few Computer Labs – The computer labs at Rochester College are very small and computers are from Dell. Not owning your own laptop or desktop would be a problem because it's hard to find computers opened.

3 College Freshman

Computers: We are given Macbooks as entering freshman. They are useful and really necessary in many class. The school, however, as terrible wifi connections in all the building except the Associates Center, or the building with the CC classrooms.

There are computers at the Ham Library at the main campus, as well as the ACE study lab and other centers like the residence halls. Lab hours are posted and vary during each semester. Students should be aware that their Internet use is monitored regularly. Rochester College does not tolerate the use of college-owned equipment for viewing what it considers to be inappropriate web sites or content (i.e., pornography, graphic violence, etc.) Students who break these rules put their privilege to use RC computers at risk and may lose their computer account with Rochester College.

Students may print up to 250 pages per semester for no charge (this reflects an allotment given on student's computer accounts.)  Printing more pages will incur a fee of 5 cents per page to the student. Students are encouraged not to rely exclusively on the labs for all their computer needs and bring a computer for at-ready personal use. Most buildings on-campus are equipped with Wi-Fi access.
