4 College Sophomore

Technology: I haven't really had to use campus computers since I usually just bring my laptop around with me, but it seems like the library computers are never overcrowded.

5 College Freshman

Technology: Amazing technology and resources but sometimes OIT sucks, there are network issues and Buzzport/university email system breaks.

5 College Sophomore

Technology: Georgia Tech is known for the quality of their wireless network. There are many computers available in the library and printing release stations in various locations on campus. There are many software and hardware specialists that work on-campus to assess any computer problems you may have. There are also many discount opportunities on software.

Technology: Laptops are a must, but printing on campus is simple and easy. Sometimes it is hard to connect to wifi but once connected it is fast. There isn't really a need for a personal printer except for convenience

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

One of the most prominent and well-known advantages of student life at Georgia Tech is access to the campus computer network. Georgia Tech prides itself on having a dependable and efficient network. Needless to say, the network surpasses even those standards. The large amount of bandwidth that is allowed over the network makes the sharing of files and applications easy, which makes studying so much easier. The network is so incredibly easy to use that it makes research feasible and increases the quality of work.

Recently, Georgia Tech changed its policy computer policy, so now all students are required to have laptops. All dorm rooms have Ethernet connections, but most students don’t use them because Georgia Tech’s wireless is dependable and easy to use. In addition, the school provides three general-use computer clusters on campus, which are full during peak hours but are usually less crowded at night. Printing and copying services are also available at the campus library’s computer cluster, located near the middle of campus. Individual departments also furnish their own computer labs, which are usually only available to students in those departments.
