Bridgewater State College has aggressively upgraded its technology in the last decade (it was recognized as a wired school by Yahoo! Internet Life magazine). Nearly 100% of floorspace on campus is covered by a 802.11b wireless network. The
Moakley Center is the major part of this project. Starting with the class of 2008, all freshmen students are required to have a laptop computer. The college has a special arrangement with Dell Computers for purchasing the laptops, or students may purchase their own. Support and "loaners" are
provided at the Moakley Center and the Maxwell Library.
