3 College Freshman

Computers: wifi is so so... my data plan hits 90% alot

2 College Sophomore

Computers: Get your own computer! You will literally never get anything done without your own. The wireless network stinks sometimes, but with so many people using it at the same time, expect nothing less.

2 College Sophomore

Computers: I don't know about labs, but I was required to purchase a Mac for software programs used in my major through Hartt. The wi-fi completely sucks though.

4 College Sophomore

Computers: they dont cancel school enough for commuters but they make it very easy for them to feel at home here

3 College Senior

Computers: When I first attended classes, I did not have a laptop computer and had to rely on the campus computer labs. At the time, the university was adding new computers and I was pleased with their progress. On the issue of printing, there seems to be no printing except in the school library. Many times all the computers were taken, or there were issues with the library printers this needs to be looked into.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

The University provides access to a computer almost everywhere on campus. The main library—Mortensen Library—has three floors of open space filled with computers, as well as several small rooms that also have computers. There are also computer labs in all of the academic buildings on campus. The computers in these labs are all PCs, but the library has a mix of PCs and Macs. The University also offers a wireless network that is available anywhere on the academic side of campus and in some places on the residential side, like the University Commons and The Hawk's Nest. All dorm rooms come equipped with an Ethernet port for easy Internet connection, and wireless access is being expanded to some dorm complexes.

Students who have questions or need help connecting to the network or University e-mail system can contact the Computer Support Center. This free service is provided by Information Technology Services, and students can either call the hotline, e-mail, or show up at the center. The CSC will help students with issues, but doesn’t do computer repairs or upgrades.
