Academic Computer Center

The Academic Computer Center is located on the ground floor of St. Joseph Hall. Both Macintosh and IBM-compatible computers are available for student use on a walk-in basis, during posted daytime and evening hours. Students may take advantage of the state-of-the-art software for purposes such as word processing, statistical analysis, graphics, desktop publication, database manipulation, web page editing and web browsing over the Internet. Laser printers are available for high-quality printed work.


The Computer Center is only open to Chestnut Hill College students. Students may apply for a personal account on the College network, giving them an Internet e-mail address and access to the Internet. All students must agree to abide by the College's rules and policies regulating the use of College computer resources.


Academic Computing also maintains a software lending library from which students may borrow magazines, books, and educational software. Students may also sign out, as needed, camcorders and tripods for various classes.


The Academic Computer Center also manages three teaching labs, two for IBM-compatible PCs and one for Macintoshes. The computer labs are available for classroom instruction ranging from computer software application basics to sophisticated programming languages. The computer labs are also available for use by faculty for the integration of technology in education.


The Devlin Video Production Suite in Martino Hall is an extension of the Academic Computer Center. This facility houses a state-of-the-art video editing laboratory, a television production studio and control room, a video production classroom and office.
