Mobile Computing Program (Laptops)

Why We've Gone Mobile

Using a Laptop All undergraduates are required to have a laptop computer that meets Rensselaer specifications, and laptops are now used in nearly every class.  Wireless connectivity is also available in every classroom.

MBA and MS students in the Lally School of Management and Technology are also required to have laptop computers. All matriculated students -- both undergraduate and graduates, regardless of school -- may participate in the Mobile Computing Program.

You can connect your laptop computer to the network in the more than 50 classrooms around the campus, using both wired and wireless connections.

In addition, every residence hall room includes network access for each resident at no additional charge, and most campus locations, including the residence halls, offer wireless connectivity.
