Duke’s network never fails to make all the Internet junkies across campus quiver with delight. It’s fast, easily accessible, well maintained, and virtually ubiquitous (wireless access in every building on campus). There are many computer clusters across campus to use, though most students choose to just bring their own laptops.
Students need not purchase a printer, as Duke has developed a handy piece of software called ePrint, which enables students to send documents to their own digital printing queue. For example, after sending a particular document to the queue, all a student needs to do is swipe his or her card at any of the dozens of public printing stations across campus, select files to print, and voila!—out comes the paper. Overall, Duke's Office of Information Technology (OIT) is extremely efficient, and students seldom complain about the quality of computing on campus (except when their dorm's ePrint station jams up).
