Although it is not a requirement that students have laptops, it is encouraged. Just in case you don't own a laptop, the University has great computer labs and a media center equipped with either Macs or PCs and printers, but any student that needs to print must load his or her ID card with money. The media center not only has computers and printers, it also has cameras and recorders that are available for students to check out.

The computer labs, especially the one located in the library, and the Media Center usually have quite a few students in them, but most of the time, you can find an empty computer to use. All residence halls are equipped with Internet access to either of the two wireless networks available. Both of them require a setup that is fast and easy. Should you have any problems during the setup, you can always contact the help desk.
