Using Your Laptop
Can I connect to wireless?
UA WiFi is open to current UA students and employees, while UA Public is open to everyone. We recommend using UA WiFi if you can, because it is more secure (encrypted), has greater capability, and is more likely to connect.
Can I plug in my laptop?
Laptop workstations (desks with power outlets) are available in all library buildings. See our floor maps.
Free charging stations are also available.
Can I use a wired connection?
Current UA students and employees are encouraged to use UA WiFi to connect to the internet. There are limited active ethernet jacks throughout the Main and Science libraries.
Register your laptop's hardware or MAC address before plugging into one of these purple ethernet jacks. Ethernet cables can be checked out from the Information Commons Desk at the Main Library. If there is no connectivity, try another network jack. Contact 24/7 IT Support Center to verify that your laptop's hardware address has been registered.
You must abide by our Acceptable Use Policy.
Cloud printing is available using any internet connection from any location. Simply send your documents to one of the CatPrints kiosks located in each of our libraries or at other campus locations. See CatPrints Cloud Printing.
You can also print using our full-sized loaner PC laptops, which are already setup to print.
