The University of Oregon has several computer labs open to all students. There are both Macs and PCs available depending on the location. If you choose to depend on the labs, the Knight Library computers are available 24 hours a day, five days a week. Unless it's finals or midterms week, computers in the libraries are pretty easy to come by. All of the computers, printers, and copiers are up to speed and are in great working condition.
In this day and age, having a laptop or some sort of personal computer is extremely useful and almost necessary. Most students will use their own computers and then print documents out in one of the libraries. Having a personal laptop is very convenient because there are more than 30 buildings across campus that offer wireless access, and the numbers are growing. All dormitories come primed with Ethernet connections, too, allowing students easy access 24 hours a day.
