Computer Facilities

A wide variety of computing resources are available to Manhattan College students, faculty, and staff via JasperNet, the college's campus-wide network. JasperNet deploys wired and wireless computing and information services to campus laboratories, classrooms, and offices, as well as to student residence halls. Twelve computer laboratories are located on the Manhattan College campus in the Research and Learning Center, De La Salle Hall, Miguel Hall and O'Malley Library. These laboratories serve all schools of the College. They support approximately 450 computers running Microsoft Windows 7 and Linux Mint.

All campus locations are connected via a multi-gigabit backbone network. JasperNet provides many network based applications and services including online courses and web based storage as well as E-mail, Internet and World Wide Web access via TCP/IP, and laser printing in the laboratories. A wide range of software is available including math and statistical packages (Maple, MathCad, MatLab, SPSS, Excel), compilers (C++, Visual Basic, Visual J++), databases (Access, SQL), word processors (MS Word), presentation graphics (PowerPoint), multimedia authoring (Macromedia Director), as well as department-specific applications (E.g. I-DEAS, AutoCad, FLUENT). JasperNet provides full ethernet connectivity to students in all of the College's residence halls. Students living in these networked buildings can connect their own networkable desktop or notebook computer directly to JasperNet.

A dedicated Web Server for the College – http://manhattan.edu – is maintained by the Information Technology Services Department and supports over fifteen thousand hypertext pages of information including online catalogs, handbooks, and policies. Some faculty members maintain web pages for their courses on the server supported by a separate file server to facilitate the posting of online courseware. The Information Technology Services Department also provides on-line support, documentation, and other services via their web site:http://manhattan.edu/academics/information-technology-services.

Computing laboratories are equipped for digital overhead projection and many are used as hands-on classrooms. Laptop computers with projection capabilities are used by instructors for demonstrations purposes in other classrooms throughout the campus which are linked to JasperNet.
