With more than 18 computer labs (all of which are open 24 hours), four cybercafés, and a wireless network, Loyola students always have computer access. However, during midterms and finals, finding an empty computer in the labs may be difficult. Some students complain about the network being too slow or having too many viruses, but it does serve its purpose. Students can connect to the network from their dorm rooms or labs to get their work done.
Loyola is connected to Groupwise e-mail, Moodle, and Webadvisor. There are computers all over campus and a lab in almost every dorm building. It's rare to go to a computer lab and not find an available computer, but it is more convenient to have a laptop to take around with you on campus. It's convenient for late-night studying, taking notes in classes, doing work on the quad or in the student center, or using during meetings with a professor. Macs are common on campus, but there are some students who do use PCs. Neither is required or recommended, and both work well with the network.
