Computers: Computers on campus are up-to-date with the world. For a college student, network reliability and speed is pretty good. However, the wifi on campus can be improved. Printing is accessible from anywhere on campus. As far as purchasing a computer, it would be great if you had one; if not, there are many available computers on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: Printing can be a pain, but the good news is that you can remotely access any printer on campus from PaperCut. There is also affordable printing at the library. The network reliability is so-so, but they're supposed to update it over the summer - fingers crossed! Access is good all over campus, though, and it's usually not too slow. There are almost always open computers at the library and Academic Center, but don't wait until the last second.

Computers: The Wi-Fi is okay but you constantly go in oand out of service if you move from one building to the next.

4 College Student

Computers: Wesleyan has many places for computers. There is Wi-fi on campus, and internet in every dorm room for personal uses. The library has about 20 computers and there is other rooms throughout campus with open computer use. The best part is their not always in use, so it is easy to go in and get your work done.

Computers are a necessity at Wesleyan. Most students have their own computers, but if someone cannot afford their own, she may rent one from the school or use the public computers in the library and Academic Center. That being said, however, if an individual decides to solely rely on the library and/or Academic Center computer labs, they risk being unable to have access to a computer consistently, due to the first-come, first-served basis. Usually, the labs are not always crowded, yet they fill up quickly around midterms and final exams. Residential students have access to tech support in their dorm or apartment with a computer resident assistant, as well as through the College's help desk system. Computer resident assistants (CRAs) are trained to provide help with network access, basic computer troubleshooting, and printer services. They are helpful with most problems, but if they are unable to fix something, they take a computer to the computer and information resources department to be repaired.

Wesleyan's network is reliable, but it has a tendency to be slow. Also, the College has limited wireless access, so students living in the residence halls use an Ethernet cord to connect to the Internet.
