4 College Junior

Computers: Wifi is offered, there are many omputers in the lab and library.

4 College Freshman

Computers: Wifi is always available. Sometimes it may go down, but campus officials are quick to put it back up.

3 College Junior

Computers: There are computers to use but it's more convenient to have your own.

3 College Freshman

Computers: Campus wifi is decently reliable and decently fast, but its accessibility more than makes up for its shortcomings. There are very few spots on campus that don't get great network reception.

1 College Student

Computers: instead of wasting all our tuition money on athletics and renovating buildings, they should work on the tech and wireless internet some more because it just need tremendous improvement more than buildings and especially athletics.

San Diego State's computer facilities are extremely useful with the variety of programs they offer and the various services they provide. The programs and support offered to students is wonderful, and taking one of the BATS courses offered by the school is highly recommended. Most of the computer labs are located in Love Library and a few others are spread around campus. The supply of computers is very abundant, and there is hardly a time when you cannot find a computer to use in the library. Unfortunately, the time that it is hard to find an available computer is during midterms and finals week. There is usually a wait of anywhere from five minutes to half an hour during this chaotic time. Getting your work done ahead of time or brining your own laptop to school is a great way to get out of waiting in line.

San Diego State has a lot of students to satisfy with its computer labs and, for the most part, the University is meeting demand. However, as previously mentioned, during midterms and finals it can be a real pain to find a computer. If the school slowly increases the number of computers in its possession over the next couple of years, the problem of computer shortage should disappear. Most students only go in during midterms and finals week when they absolutely need to finish their work, and that is why there is such a congestion.
