The computers are pretty much up to date. They all work very well and have fast internet. I usually go to the computer lab in the morning and it isn't very crowded. I think it is more convenient to have a personal computer because you can use it wherever you want whenever you want, but if you don't have one, the computers on campus are always there. As far as printing, you need to have money that is transferred to your school account in order to use to printers. If you do not have money on your card, you cannot pay for the printer, even if you have cash on you. I find this to be a problem because in order for you to put money on your account you have to go to a special office where they deal with finances and you fill out a form to have money put in.
