See the Residencies website and your residency registration confirmation email for information about What to Bring to the residency.
Students attending a Ph.D. residency are required to bring a laptop computer. Students attending all other residencies are not required to bring laptops.
However, you may want one to complete work or online coursework before and after residency sessions and/or to stay in touch with family and friends. Some sessions relating to technology may be offered at the residency and having a laptop for practice during these sessions can be useful but is not required.
Complimentary internet access will be available in the meeting space at the host venue. Internet in sleeping rooms is complimentary for students staying in the Walden room block at the host venue. The hotel business center generally makes computers and printers available for a fee.
In order to prepare your personal computer or laptop for residency attendance, please make certain you are familiar with the steps to connect to a wireless internet and that you are able to connect wirelessly to another network. Also, be sure your computer is completely charged before attending your first sessions each day of the residency. Recharge stations will also be available for you to charge your computer throughout the day. If you need assistance with your computer while you are attending your residency, please contact the Student Support Team (SST) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
