Cornell's computing capabilities are top of the line. Most students agree that computer labs are easily accessible, convenient, and well equipped. All labs are outfitted with high speed Internet access (some with wireless) and any software you can think of. Operating systems include both Windows and Mac OS. Furthermore, the Cornell information technologies staff is extremely efficient about resolving problems and troubleshooting personal computing issues.
All libraries are outfitted with computer terminals where you can check e-mail on the run or send an instant message to a friend in between classes. Even though Cornell takes computing very seriously and recognizes the educational benefits of staying up-to-date on cutting-edge technologies, students will still benefit from having a personal computer, which will make their work that much more convenient and efficient. With a personal computer, you may still check in with on-campus services such as the Library Gateway.
