4 College Freshman

Technology: The labs are pretty great here. With 2 computer banks plus a mac lab in the library alone and at least 6 other labs scattered around campus you can find a computer most of the time. Also (as of now) there is no printing limit and it's free!

4 College Sophomore

Technology: Essentially, every major building on campus has a computer lab. The best labs are in the Skillman Library for the Liberal Arts majors. There are plenty of macs and PCs for everyone (whatever your preference may be). Most popular softwares are available on these computers. In the Acopian Engineering Building, there are plenty of labs and professors to get help with the more complex software needed for engineering programs. Unless they discontinue the policy, printing is free across campus. The network is reliable and fast, and you can get wireless just about anywhere on campus (except for the quad, but they are working on this). During busy periods, the library is pretty packed, so if you need quiet time back in your room, it's very useful to have your own computer and printer readily available.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The Lafayette campus is well-equipped to handle the student body’s computer needs. Skillman Library, which is open seven days a week, has two computer labs: a Mac lab and a PC lab. The work stations have ample room, and printers are located conveniently nearby. In addition, both Macs and PCs can be checked out from the circulation desk if students so desire. Printing throughout campus is free, and several of the academic buildings have smaller computer labs. Pardee Hall, for example, has one on the first floor. The basement of Marquis Hall has another, open 24 hours. Typically, the computer labs in Skillman Library and the Marquis basement get somewhat crowded after nightfall and during midterms/finals week. Otherwise, access is readily available.

Most students bring laptops to campus. All common areas, like laundry rooms and common rooms, have electric outlets. Printing, faxing, scanning, and copying facilities are available in the Skillman Library for a nominal fee. The IT department operates out of Skillman from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays. The basement of Pardee Hall has a branch of the IT department that deals with hardware issues. The staff is typically helpful and cooperative.
