4 College Sophomore

Computers: Computer availability and printing is fine, but a lot of the technology in classrooms is outdated.

3 College Freshman

Computers: The wifi is good most of the time but can be a hassle.

4 College Junior

Computers: I can normally always find a computer either in the library or in the computer labs. Printing can get pricey if you like to print all your power points. I recommend buying a cheaper print for home if you need to print power points out. Otherwise it's not bad and they give you some money to start out with to print for free.

4 College Freshman

Computers: I have not had any issue with printing on campus and the wireless access is a plus. It lets me do so many things, regardless where I might be on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: The network reliability can be pretty spotty sometimes

The consensus among UNL students is that the computer labs are up-to-date and normally not crowded, with certain exceptions, such as finals week and midterms. Students recommend bringing your own computer for the sheer convenience, but they also say that life will go on on if you have to use the labs every now and then.

If you’re planning on buying a computer, consider a laptop. Most students don’t take their laptops to class, but they do come in handy for group meetings and times you just can’t stand to sit idle and listen to your roommate sing the theme song to Friends over and over again. All locations on campus, including the dorms, have wireless Internet, so you can check your e-mail from your very laptop anywhere.
