Internet access is also available in the Health Sciences Library. Medical students may visit the library 24 hours a day. The facility is within a 3-minute walk of each house in the Chestnut Building. Individual laptops can be networked directly to the Baystate server if equipped with appropriate software/spyware. Individual telephones are located in each bedroom with free local and hospital wide access.
During off-time, students are located within minutes of downtown Springfield, plentiful night life and a short drive from Northampton's eclectic shopping and restaurant district. The office provides visiting medical students with a Greater Springfield Location Guide which highlights local grocery stores, movie theaters, restaurants, and more.
