Move-In Checklist

information technology services

Some suggestions about what technology to bring to BC:

  1. Your laptop. Prepare your computer for BC.
  2. UL-approved fire and surge protector strip (required by BC's Offices of Fire & Safety and Residential Life)
  3. If you bring a TV, you will need a Roku streaming device to connect to Xfinity on Campus IPTV streaming service and a coaxial cable to connect to BC cable.
  4. Backup your important files. To make sure you don't lose important files if your computer stops working, you should back up your computer on a regular basis. BC Google Drive offers you an unlimited amount of space to store files. Also, you can use an online service, such as Carbonite or DropBox. You might also consider purchasing a flashdrive or external hard drive.
  5. Prepare to print. Students can print to laser printers in O'Neill Library from anywhere on campus. You are given $15 in PrintBucks each semester (equivalent to 500 black and white pages). Learn more about printing at BC.
  6. If you bring a wireless printer, you will need a USB cable to use it on campus. Wireless printers are designed to work in home network environments, and therefore will not work wirelessly on a campus network environment.
