There appears to be a computer for every student at Elmhurst. The library has more than 70 computers, while Daniels Hall has around the same amount. The College’s computers are fast, reliable, and all are hooked up to a printer. Black-and-white printing is free, and there’s a small fee for colored ink. Most of the computers are PCs, but there are a few Macs in the library.
Each dorm is equipped with wireless Internet. The connection speed depends on a student’s location in the dorm, but there are also non-wireless hook ups in each dorm, which are faster in most cases. Wireless printers don’t usually work because students have to enter their access code—it’s a one-time deal, so students don’t have to log in every time—to access the wireless Internet on a computer or device, so make sure you can manually hook up your laptop. Students can log in up to three devices to their wireless account, but they have to be able to access a web browser. If they don’t have a web browser, they can always be manually hooked up. If students have any problems they can always use the tech help, which is useful and free.
