While there are numerous computer labs available for student use and bringing your own computer is not required, owning your own computer is more convenient. All residence halls at Mercyhurst have one computer network hookup per student plus wireless connectivity. It is recommended that students purchase an Ethernet cable to use for a wired network connection. A wired connection is faster than a wireless connection and in cases where the wireless connection is down, the wired connection will be available to limit downtime.
