Computing Resources Overview
There are more than 60 public computers available for students. All public computers use Windows 7. There are high speed laser printers networked to these computers. Law students may print up to 800 pages free; additional pages are 10¢ per page (35¢ for color). RICOH printer/copiers located on LL2 and LL3 will also scan to email at no cost to your account.
A network account is created for each entering student. This account allows access to all campus resources, WebAdvisor, network storage, printing, and off-campus access. If you wish, you may synchronize your Outlook.com password to your network password, but this is a less secure method of configuring your account.
Each student is provided the following services:
- Access to TheStable, W&L's innovative VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure). This is a secure way to access network resources from a browser anywhere in the world with a decent internet connection. Great for backing up academic data and safely conducting clinic work.
- 1 GB of private network file storage space. This space is accessible from any location on or off campus, and is the preferred alternative to portable storage. It is backed up nightly.
- An Outlook.com email account. With this account students can access e-mail, calendars, and shared document libraries. However, please NOTE: the email password is not the synchronized with your network password automatically...When you change one, you must change the other to make them the same.
- Access to the Law School's high-speed wireless network. This allows students to be connected to network servers, printers, and the Internet from classrooms, carrels, the law library, and from even outside of the building. To access the wireless, log into the Guest wireless while on campus and then enter wireless.wlu.edu into your web browser and step through the wizard.

Almost all Law students choose to augment the computing resources provided by the University with computers of their own. To find out more about personal computing at W&L, continue to the Personal Computing page.
