With the availability of general computer labs, you are not required to own a computer. However, many students bring their own computers to campus. Using wireless network connectivity, you can connect to the college network and the Internet from residence halls, Loew-Brenn, Science Hall, Library, Dining Commons, and HUB. The college does not offer hardwired Ethernet connections for students.
