The Learning Commons is a full service learning, research, and project space for students. In addition to public computers and printing services, the space offers Wi-Fi coverage, Backbone® media platforms with 50 inch wall mounted flat screens for group collaboration and media sharing, lounge chairs and café height worktable areas with power outlets for recharging, and mobile tables and whiteboards.

Students may borrow laptops and equipment for use in the Library through the loaner program.  Technical assistance and general information is available at the Leaning Commons Service Desk. 

Wireless Network

Wireless connectivity is available for Wi-Fi capable personal devices throughout the Elms College campus. There is wireless coverage in each of the dorms and in the Alumnae Library, College Center, Maguire Center, CNHS and classrooms in Berchmans Hall.  In addition, the wireless network can be accessed outdoors in the Quad and in public spaces such as the Maguire gym and pool areas.   


Students can print from any computer classroom or lab with a valid Elms User ID. Print jobs are managed through the Equitrac print management system. The College provides a $25.00 printing allotment to each student at the beginning of the semester. Copies are $.10 each and automatically deducted from the student’s printing account. 

Students are responsible for adding money to their student ID card for printing beyond the initial allotment. When the amount is exceeded during the semester, funds can be replenished at the Office of Student Accounts. 

Several printers are located in the Alumnae Library, College Center, Berchmans Hall, and in each computer classroom and lab.  In addition, the Alumnae Library offers fee-based printing services to the public.
