5 College Sophomore

Computers: SGA offers 50 free pages a week to print. They have also opened two "All Knight Studys" which are always open and have computers and separate group work areas. The library has 5 floors 3 of which offer computers and each level has a different noise level. The library also offers presentation areas and group study areas both of which come in handy.

3 Recent Alumnus

Computers: The library has great computers if you can grab a free one. Wi-Fi is a bit shady and sometimes doesn't work properly.

5 Recent Alumnus

Computers: There's free printing in the student union and a couple computer labs on campus. Wireless can be accessed anywhere by students on campus.

3 College Student

Computers: The wireless internet could be faster but with as many students as there are it is understandable.

4 College Freshman

Computers: You could probably get by without a laptop, but you would be spending a lot of time in a lab. It's more convenient to have your own workspace (aka your bedroom).

There are several computer labs on campus, all of which are very accommodating to the students. You shouldn't have a problem finding a computer to use as long as it's not during finals week. During finals week, you may want to go early to hunt out a computer, or bring a laptop from home if you have one.

The library offers a fabulous service that rents out laptops for up to four hours at a time! Of course, you can't leave the library premises with them, but you can set up anywhere in the library and connect wirelessly to the Internet instantly. UCF has a fast wireless connection that would satisfy even the most impatient person. The computers are new and up-to-date, with easy access to all of UCF's programs. It would be nice if printing was free, but the five-cents-per-page fee isn't too bad. You are permitted up to 20 pages of free printing per day at the Student Government Lab, which is helpful and sufficient. Overall, the technology at UCF is good enough to enable students to get the job done. We're no MIT, but UCF is not technologically obsolete by any means.
