The entire Smith campus is wired with sophisticated high-speed network connections to every faculty and administrative office, all academic buildings, all residential house rooms and to locations throughout the library system. Students enjoy easy access to extensive computer equipment all over campus, including more than 400 Macintosh and Windows computers available in public resource centers, labs and classrooms. Even late at night, help is never far away: a Computer Information Center provides phone and walk-in help and is generally staffed the same hours as the computer labs. A growing number of campus locations—including the libraries and Campus Center—provide wireless Internet access.
The campus network allows access to computing resources such as the college's UNIX and Novell servers, the Internet, email, the online Five College library and course catalogues, software servers and remote printing.
