    For your computer: Laptop Lounge

    Before there was WiFi, there was the Laptop Lounge and it's still here in the Texas Union Underground.  You'll have to bring your own short internet cable, but these are fast ports, including electrical outlets right beside them to keep your computer charged. Who said wired was dead? And, you get to check out the bowling action in the Underground and take advantage of the snacks and drinks available at the Underground service desk.

    Note: Docking stations are for the exclusive use of UT faculty, staff and currently enrolled students.
