Students Still Expect Computer Labs

A post from The Wired Campus blog is entitled ‘Student Computer Labs Still in Demand‘ which summarises the results of a survey in the US. Despite 72% of all college and university students in the US owning their own computers it appears that they still want computer labs because:

  • their laptops might be stolen
  • they needed the software available on the college-owned computers
  • they didn’t want to cart heavy laptops around
  • they needed to use the labs’ printers
