Cadet Computing

VMI furnishes a significant number of computers for cadet use in academic buildings and laboratories

VMI does not furnish computers for individual cadet use in Barracks nor does it require cadets to bring personal computers. If cadets wish to bring a personal computer, it must be a notebook computer due to its portability, small footprint, and energy efficiency.

The VMI Barracks is wired to allow cadets access to the VMI network and the Internet.

Support for cadet-owned computers is offered through the Information Technology Department. Cadets who purchase the recommended laptop units will receive support enabling them to use their laptops on the VMI network. Computer support may also include tutorial sessions, web page access, and trained cadet technicians for evening support.

Further information may be obtained by contacting the Information Technology Department Help Desk at (540) 464-7643 or email
