Standard Hardware

All PC computers and many Macs have CD-RW drives for burning CDs. All computers have USB ports (typically on the front or side) for USB drives.

Network Access

All computers require a Butler username and password for login. Once logged in, your BUfiles will be connected as drive H:\ (Windows) or on your desktop (Mac).

On Windows computers, drive G:\ is connected to the "Courses" directory, where some faculty store course-related material for your use.
