Information Technology at The Citadel

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.
