Computers have never been an issue at Scripps. Between the students who have personal computer and the amount the campus offers, the issue of shortage has rarely been a problem. There is a computer lab as well as a computer closet in each of the dorms complete with a printer. Resources are always available, though it tends to get a bit crowded and noisy in computer closets during busy periods of the academic year.
The communal computer lab is accessible with an ID card, so students can come in at any time that they want. Similarly, dorm computer closets have access codes known to the students in the particular dorm, which offers access at any time. The IT Department is on hand to help during the day and is conveniently located around the communal computer lab for ease. The majority of students bring their own laptops or desktops for the privacy and convenience, although most do not bring a printer of their own. It is notable that a lot has been done to update the computers on campus, making Scripps more technology friendly, including a wireless connection around campus. Also, an online academic portal was set up for students to easily and quickly access grades and other academic information, including class schedule, low-grade notices, and complete records.
