Computers and Laptops

Each library on campus has kiosks and terminals for convenience and access to our digital resources. The library also has a selection of computer equipment (laptops, scanners, printers, etc.) and audiovisual materials (CD and DVD players, microform readers, etc.) for use and loan.
In addition, computers and tablets may be checked-out. See the library's laptop availability and learn more about policies for their use.

WiFi at VU

Current Vanderbilt student, faculty or staff members have the benefit of campus-wide wifi access. For questions and assistance, contact Vanderbilt ITS. For regulations regarding appropriate use of computers, review Vanderbilt University's Computer Privileges and Responsibilities policy.

Printing, Scanning, and Copying

The VUprint system manages printing across campus. For convenience, personal computers can install a VUprint driver. Black and white prints, available throughout the VUprint system, can be printed for $0.06 per page. Color prints available for $0.25 per page.

A VUnet ID and e-password are needed for printing. You can add money to your Commodore Card at Card Services. Guest printing cards are available for purchase at library service desks.

Photocopiers are also available in each library across campus. Black and white copies can be made for $0.06 per page if using a Commodore Card, or $0.10 per page if paying cash. Color copying is $.25 per page. There is no charge for the scan-to-email option or the scan-to-flash-drive option, but a Commodore or guest card is required.
