Student Computers

Buying Your Own Computer

Though Virginia Wesleyan offers several computer labs for student use, we recommend that you purchase your own computer for use in your dorm room. There are quite a few benefits of owning your own computer:

  • It's easy to connect to the campus network and the Internet from your room
  • You'll be able to install your own software and games
  • You'll have a lot more storage space for files and downloads (since the Internet is so fast, you'll be doing a lot of downloading)
  • You'll never have to wait for a seat in the labs
  • You'll have access to your computer at any time of night or day
  • You can take it with you when you leave
