Computer Lab Software

An icon of three computers

We’re delighted to announce that we now have over 80 applications available via ThunderApps! Using this technology, students are able to access fully functional  computer based programs through a browser on their devices.


Some of the key benefits of ThunderApps are these:


  • The College can reduce the number of lab computers on campus and provide students with convenient access to the software they need, even from off-campus.
  • The power and graphics capabilities of the end user's device is not a limitation and has little impact on the overall experience.
  • We can provide students with access to expensive software for coursework.




All campus computer labs are equipped with printers that can print, copy and scan in black & white and in color. The cost is 4 cents per side for black & white printouts/copies and 12 cents per side for color printouts/copies. Students pay for printing using their student ID cards, which send the charge to Student Accounts. There is no additional charge for scanning.


Guests and Alumni

There are four computers in Buswell Library for guests of Wheaton College to use. Alumni can sign in to any of the Buswell Library lab computers.
