The Citadel provides all students with an email account and superior computing resources, including kiosks in Mark Clark and Bond Hall for quick access, over a dozen computer labs located in classroom buildings, several auditoriums, and a small lab in each of the barracks. All labs are equipped with personal computers and high-speed networked printers while others have additional equipment such as scanners for scanning text or photos. Most of the college’s 100+ classrooms and auditoriums have ceiling-mounted multimedia projection and sound systems.
Information Technology staff members assist students at the IT Help Center in Bond Hall, during the evenings in the Daniel Library and from several IT repair workshops located in the barracks. The Multimedia Services staff assists students to utilize specialized software to design and edit graphics, create computer presentations or video projects.
The Citadel has a high-speed campus-wide network that connects virtually every computer on campus to the internet. Many areas around the campus are also configured with wireless networking.
Approximately 90 percent of cadets bring a personal computer of their own to use in the barracks. A Citadel standard virus-protection software application downloads at the point when the cadet first connects to the Internet and the PC is scanned for viruses. Information Technology staff and student workers assist to answer questions and solve computer problems per the IT Technical Assistance Policy.
The college encourages students to review The Citadel’s website prior to purchasing a computer or software application to review the minimum requirements for compatibility with The Citadel’s network, learn about academic pricing discount opportunities, and understand warranty information for technical support.
