    Yes there are computer labs. However, you will also need a laptop regardless. Even a used 4 yrar old machine with XP on it that you get for $150 will be enough. Because you will want to be able to work in your dorm room.

    When assignments are due for you they are due for everyone and you will not be able to get a seat at a lab when you need one.

    Not having a laptop at college is false economy.

    Most schools have computer labs but there is no guarantee that they will have a space open when you need it. Also, many schools do not have labs that are open 24 hours a day or 7 days a week. So if you can afford it, I recommend you get a laptop. That way you can write papers and do research whenever you want to.

    There are libraries with lots of computers and computer labs, but if you can, get a laptop. Sometimes the computers are full, sometimes the library is too loud and you need to go somewhere else, you may want to take notes in class on a lap top, etc....
