Students attending JHSPH make frequent use of their laptops for research, writing and note taking. The Information Technology team strongly urges all students to upgrade their laptops (or purchase new ones) to meet the following technical criteria, ensuring them seamless access to the School's networks and resources. Enrolled students are eligible for significant discounts on equipment when purchasing new systems.
The School provides wireless network access to connect to the Internet and student printing resources from within the Wolfe Street and Hampton House buildings. Students will need to meet with Information Technology Staff at designated times to have the school's wireless instructions added to their laptop.
