4 College Senior

Computers: Speed is fast I just wish I knew where all the computer labs were (second floor hodges fills up quick)

3 College Junior

Computers: Printing on campus is really annoying and expensive. Wireless is available everywhere. You most likely need a personal computer and printer for your own sanity.

3 College Freshman

Computers: There are many computers in Hodges Library but they take a while to load up when a lot of students are using the computers

4 College Freshman

Computers: I have my own laptop so i rarely use the campus computers, but they are very convenient.

4 College Student

Computers: Printing is really cheap, 2 cents a page, and there are computer labs all over campus with staffed OIT staff. UT wifi is always pretty fast and has only gone out maybe once. A personal computer isn't necessary but a lot of things are turned in online and business majors are required to have a laptop.

Vast improvements have taken place in the last several years in regards to technology. Computers are accessible to students, and the network is speedy enough to satisfy those accustomed to DSL and cable networks. No matter how many computers are on campus, nothing beats having a computer of your own. Very few people come to Knoxville without one, and you will probably regret not having a personal computer when the labs are crowded or inconvenient.

UT’s computer store, located in the UC, has just about every software application you will need, and most of the hardware you might need, as well. If computers have not been a big part of your life so far, you will be surprised how dependant you become. Downloading music and communicating with friends are only the tip of the iceberg. Many class-related needs can be fulfilled on a computer, and it is commonly a priority to set up your computer on UT’s network the day that you arrive.
