UVa-Wise has designed and installed a high-speed data and campus television network (UVa-Wise Comcast Channel 55) that reaches to all parts of the campus. The campus network connects faculty computers, classrooms, administrative offices as well as our residence halls. Our network infrastructure features one network connection per room occupant ("port per pillow"). This means that each student has their own high-speed connection to the campus network and Internet. The systems in place now support the delivery of voice, data, and cable television. The campus also features a growing number of wireless network locations in public areas and conference rooms on campus.
Students who bring a computer and/or television to campus will never have to go without information about the world around them. The College also has two major educational programs available to students through Dell and Apple Computer. Click one of the icons at the bottom of this page for more information on these great educational discount programs for UVa-Wise students, faculty and staff.
Our systems have been recently redesigned and updated with the latest in web-based electronic mail, enterprise calendaring, course management (Blackboard & Moodle) and administrative software. Our server systems are enterprise-class Microsoft Windows Server and Linux-based systems providing our campus with the most reliable service available in the nation.
