There's little you can't do with the on-campus computers. The wireless network, also known as Air Bear, spikes from time-to-time, but the library staff stays abreast of most problems. The two labs that are open twenty-four hours are completely different and act as a late-night hub for student activity. The Information Commons on the second floor of Moody Library is more of a group study area, and there are no quiet hours. The garden level lab is considered a "quiet study area," and if your group work gets too loud, you'll be asked to leave. Every semester, Student Technology Services hosts software clinics free to all students, faculty, and staff where you can learn programs such as Power Point, Flash, Dreamweaver, Photoshop, and Fireworks. Typically the only complaints that ever go on with the computers on campus are that during finals there aren't enough available. Baylor has been undergoing serious budget cuts in the last two years, so none of the computers have been replaced, and the allotment for printing and charges are relatively new.
There is a Baylor Book Store that has some decent discounts on software, so you can check that out if you're in need. Online gamers eat up a lot of bandwidth once you're plugged into the network if you're living in a dorm, but for general computer usage, you'll never run into any problems.
