Look into Laurier

Join us at Laurier

Computer/Tablet Wireless Requirements

If you are purchasing a new computer or tablet to bring to Laurier, please be aware that your new system will need to connect to a wireless network as there is no general access wired capability in student areas around campus, including residence. It's also important that your new system has either 5Ghz or "dual band" wireless radio technology. Some systems support only the 2.4 Ghz band, which is also commonly used by smart phones and other wireless devices. This band can quickly become saturated, resulting in poor performance. A 5 Ghz or dual band system has a better chance of establishing a responsive wireless connection. This feature can be as important a characteristic of your new system as memory or processor speed.
