Computers, Laptops, & Wi-Fi
The TTU Libraries has a plethora of resources available to help foster the Texas Tech community's use of technology both inside and outside the library. Note also that the Advanced Technology Learning Center (ATLC) and the Teaching, Learning, and Professional Development Center (TLPDC) have computing resources housed in the University Library building.
We own and maintain more than two hundred computers for students, faculty, and the public to use. These computers have a wide variety of software installed to help facilitate library research.
Use your eRaider account to log into a library computer.

For eRaider holders, you must log in with your eRaider username and password to use the wireless network. Please note that the University - NOT the Libraries - owns, manages, and supports the wireless network. If you have questions about setting up the connection on your computer or problems connecting to the wireless network, please contact the TTU IT Help Central help desk at (806) 742-4357 (742-HELP). Visit the IT Help Central page on wireless access for official information.
For visitors, please contact the East or West Library Service Desk on the ground floor of the main library to receive a temporary password. The TTU Telecom usually changes the Wi-Fi access password every few weeks. You may request a new password from a Library Service Desk when your Wi-Fi password expires.
