Computer Labs



Wheaton College has one large central computer lab on the first floor of the Buswell Library. The Billy Graham Center houses one smaller lab located on the 3rd floor in Special Collections. These labs are available to all students. In addition, each residence hall has a small lab available to the students who live in those dorms. See Hours and Locations below for details. 

Our computer labs provide a variety of software, laser printing, email, and access to the Internet. 

Support Desk Technicians are on duty at the Buswell Library Info Desk Monday - Thursday evenings and Saturday afternoons.
