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.
During the SSW term, most computer labs are open until 10 p.m., and two facilities offer 24-hour computing. Windows and Macintosh computers are available at the computer centers.
Ethernet in Rooms
Students will find their rooms equipped with a computer jack that connects them with ResNet, the Ethernet link to Smith's campuswide, fiber-optic network. ResNet operates up to 700 times faster than standard modems and allows access to campus computing resources like the college's UNIX and Novell servers, the Internet, e-mail, the online Five College library and course catalogs, and software servers.
