While most students have their own computers in their dorm room or at home, they generally do not bring them to class, unless it is required. If students decide to bring their own computer, they can take advantage of the campus-wide wireless Internet; however, a lot of students take refuge in the computer lab to kill time in between classes. There are plenty of computers available, both PC and Mac, and most have programs students need to complete their work. FIT works hard to offer its students access to modern and emerging technologies and software, including the latest in graphic design applications and computer-aided design.
If students have an issue with their own personal computer, they can visit IT Media Services. For security purposes, passwords used to log in to the computers are changed about twice a semester. Each student has his or her own username and password.
