There were 80 computers with 1 Mbps Internet access in the computer laboratory located on the 3rd floor of Building 4. Initially, there was only one computer laboratory and it was mainly used by PKRU students, who enrolled for two main General education courses: Information Technology for Life and Information Technology for Learning.

The Internet connection expanded to other faculties and offices of the University. .
