Public Internet Access: The Davis Center

Address

The campus University of Vermont is located in Burlington, Vermont.

Phone Number: (802) 656–INFO

The Dudley H. Davis center is located to the far right of the campus and is one of the most recent and readily noticeable buildings on the campus. If you're at the Fletcher Free Library, you can either walk up hill until you reach the campus, or you can take the shuttle.

Unique Facts and Features

 The Davis Center is a major effort on the part of the UVM to earn the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certification in engineering. The building is actually made in part, from materials that came from the demolition and reconstruction of the pedestrian walkway that once lead beneath the highway.

Number of Computers

 There are seven computers located on the third floor of the Davis Center. In the photo above, if you follow the stairs straight to the top you will see them scattered about. (Or if you're a lazy you could take the elevator. Your choice.)

To get on the Internet

 First, it should be noted that the computers available to you are Macs. So if you have any prejudices against Macs than take your business elsewhere you racist freak!

Seriously though, they're pretty decent computers. Decent enough that you'll want to take one home with you. But don't, or you'll get arrested. You do not need a student or staff ID to use these computers. If they're available, just walk right up and hop on.

Net Junky Protip: There are no chairs here. These are standing stations and it would not behoove you to act like a moron by demanding a chair. Just check your e-mail, update your Facebook and move on.

All the psychedelic colors without having to do something illegal.

To avoid having to negotiate Vermont traffic, you can take this cool tunnel walkway from the Davis Center to the other side of the road.

Customer Service Rating N/A

This is a building on one of the most prominent univerisities in the United States. As such, the staff at the information desk really aren't required to help you with any Internet related issues. They are amazingly helpful with information like what you can post on the pegboard, where you can go if you're looking for a certain class, etc. But that can be said of any college campus really.

So a big old Not Applicable rating is appropriate for this because your tax dollars don't pay for it.

The Davis Center isn't a library. The UVM library is in a different building on the campus and you need a student ID to get into the computers there.

Thank you for the vote up.
