There is an abundance of computers found throughout the campus, whether in one of the many computer labs or at a "computer station" down a hallway. Most students have a computer on hand for personal use and accessing the Internet while in their dorms, but the abundance of computers on campus is a good substitute. Be aware that some technology on laptops may only be on certain computers, like Photoshop or Movie Maker on Mac. Macs are available for use in the Sverdrup building or in Emerson Library if you need to access a specific program.

Campus-wide Wi-Fi is accessible using a student's connection username and password, without the worry of it being abused by the public. However, as of late, the campus's network is beginning to become overworked and can put the Internet at a standstill. Some places around campus are better than others when it comes to Wi-Fi, such as some rooms in Maria not having any connectivity in one spot, but when moved over a few inches, it works again. There have been times when the network has been shut down for repairs and maintenance for hours, sometimes days at a time.

Facts & Statistics

Wireless Access
Yes
Everywhere on campus. Some of the weakest places to connect are in the deepest parts of the Emerson Library and Maria Hall. The rooms in Maria are known to have spotty coverage.
24-Hour Labs?
Yes
The Cyber Café in Emerson Library. You have to swipe your student ID to get in after the library is closed.
Charged to Print?
Yes
It is usually 10 cents per page if it's uneducational material. However, students usually get around this rule.
Special Software & Hardware Discounts
Apple, Adobe, Microsoft, and Dell provide discounts on computers, software, electronic gadgets, and more. With Adobe and Microsoft software, you are required to order by credit card through the website in order to be eligible for the discounts. AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile provide cell phone discounts to students with IDs. There are other software and program discounts through the bookstore and efollett.com.
Did You Know?
Camcorders, professional cameras, and other various expensive media equipment can be rented out for a 24-hour period through the media center in the Sverdrup Complex, provided you have a valid Webster ID.
