Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Most students at Oral Roberts University have their own computers, but the campus computer labs are easily accessible and are rarely crowded if you need to use one of the University’s computers. Most of the PCs are very up to date and have Windows 7 installed on them. While a majority of students here are happy with the number and availability of the campus computer labs, most say it’s extremely helpful to bring your own computer so you won’t have to rely solely on the University’s.

The network is fairly reliable, with maybe an unexpected disturbance once or twice a month. Wi-Fi is accessible almost everywhere on campus. It is a little harder to get it in the dorms at this time, but ORU has been going through many changes recently and wireless will most likely be easily accessible in the dorms before too long.
