Inserting the battery in your brand new hotspot:

  • The battery is located under the cardboard insert. Remove it from the plastic packaging.
  • To insert the battery, the back panel of the hotspot device needs to be removed. Near the charging port, there is a small notch in the plastic on one of the corners. Insert your fingernail or a small tool in the notch and pull in order to remove the back panel. This will be difficult, but the back should eventually fully come off.
  • Discard the small silica gel packet that is in the device.
  • Match up the three gold spots on the edge of the battery with the three gold parts on the device when inserting it. These connections need to touch for the hotspot to work. When you do so, the text-side of the battery will be facing you, and the battery should fit snuggly within the hotspot.
  • Replace the back cover, being sure to fully press down on all the edges so there are no open spaces. There may be snapping/clicking sounds.
  • Plug in your device to charge it and continue following set-up instructions provided with the device.

The Learning Resources Center has two student computer labs:

  • The Study Center, located on the second floor of the Schauerman Library
  • Library Media Technology Center, located in the Schauerman Library's east basement.

Printing: Printing is available in both library computer labs. Black-and-white printing is 10 cents per page. Color printing is 50 cents per page. A current student ID card is needed to print in both labs. Students may use cash or a credit/debit card to pay for printing.

Please note, a $2.00 minimum is required when a credit/debit card is used.

The first time you use the campus print system, bring your student ID card to the computer lab in the library's east basement. The staff will help you prepare your card for printing.
