Frequently Asked Questions

How connected is Ithaca? Do I need to bring a computer?

Having your own computer is certainly convenient, and most students do bring or purchase laptops.

All academic and administrative buildings, as well as all residence halls, have wireless coverage. Ithaca residence halls also offer a dedicated Ethernet port for each student.

If you'd rather use our computer labs, we have over 15 general-access facilities and nearly 700 computers (Windows and Mac platforms available). All of our labs offer printing services and high-speed connections. 

The School of Business recommends that entering students bring laptops (/business/laptops/index.php). The School of Communications strongly recommends that students own laptops (/rhp/laptops/).

Information Technology Services offers discount purchase programs for Dell and Apple computers (/its/services/purchase/personalequip/).
