Campus Computer Network
A fiber optic backbone delivers high-speed network access to all campus facilities, including all classrooms, offices and residence halls. Within the residence halls, each student is provided an individual network connection. The Ethernet network supports Windows-based and non-Windows based PCs and provides students access to electronic mail and the Internet. Brescia University also offers wireless network access that allows students to access resources with laptops from almost anywhere on campus.
Computer labs are conveniently located in several buildings across campus. The Library houses the Young Technology Center and also provides computers on the main floor as well as the 3rd floor. The Kentucky Room in the library houses a computer-based multimedia system, and on the 3rd floor of the library there is a student multimedia study room. Bartholomy-Taylor Hall (formerly the Administration Building) contains a computer lab (CRC) on the 3rd floor for open use when classes are not in there. The Art department also has a Mac lab used for teaching graphic design. The Science Building houses a public computer lab in 212S and a closed (classes-only) computer lab in 110S. The Charles Albert Reid School of Business has a computer lab in room 101 for business students.
