Computers around campus
Locations and access
All dormitory rooms are wired for high-speed access to the campus network and to the Internet. Students are encouraged to bring their own computers. The business-class computers work best with the network. Eureka College provides the (wired) network connectivity and support. We also provide anti-virus software for all computers connected to the network, on request. Students are responsible for any other hardware or software issues with their own computers.
There are six computer labs on the Eureka College campus to serve student needs. The student-to-computer ratio is about 7 (students) to 1 (computer). Students can easily find an available computer in one of these labs. Classes are held in some labs. Lab Assistants are available in the Computer Study Center in the Melick Library to help students. Users may contact the Help Desk with any computer-related issues.

A 24-station “smart computer lab” with advanced computer technologies, is available for instructional use. In addition, two other computer labs are available for “hands-on” classroom activities. Portable audio visual equipment is also available on request.
The wireless access to the Internet is available in limited areas on campus. The current areas include the Melick Library, the Cerf Center, and the Ben Major Hall.
In addition to the general productivity software, Eureka College uses some software applications designed for specific purposes. The services available over the Internet require user authentication. All users are responsible for any activity associated with the login accounts assigned to them. Any authentication-related issues or network misuses may be reported to computer services.
