4 College Senior

Technology: There are 2 main computers labs that all students can access as well as specialty labs for specific groups. There's a printing quota of 200 pages per semester, I believe, and it's very easy to get onto a computer in my school.

4 College Sophomore

Technology: There are enough computers for you to use if you need ti print out things you just have to get there a little earlier.

4 Recent Alumnus

Technology: School has at least 1 computer lab or more in each building on campus. The most popular one would be the lab in the NAC building on the main level and following would be the computer lab situated on the lower level of the library. The connection is not the fastest but it is not snail powered. Wireless access is readily available anywhere on campus, no need for personal computer unless you want to sit in a private room and need it to write a report or study.

3 College Freshman

Technology: There are times of days when they would be packed but printing is free.

3 College Junior

Technology: During busy hours, it is very hard to find an available computer because the staff closes a number of rooms with computers in them for no apparent reason.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The computer network at CCNY can be quick at times, and at others it can be terribly slow. Network speed generally depends on where and when you're accessing the Web. The library in the NAC has the largest selection of computers in the school, but they are often the slowest. If you want to use the Internet, you should visit the Rudin Learning Center. This area is not used by many students because few know about it.

The computer lab is one of the few areas on campus that allows students to print (there is a maximum of 17 pages per print click). There are always lines at the lab, so plan accordingly if you're worried about being late to class. If you don't need to print, the best thing to do is bring a laptop and access the WiFi available around campus. Be aware, though, that WiFi signals in classrooms are often weak, especially in the older buildings.
