There are more than 50 computer labs available on campus, containing over 1,300 PCs, including 40 systems in the Library. Check with the Library for current operating hours.
Many of the departmental labs are available for student use when the lab is not being used as a scheduled classroom. Available open hours for labs are commonly posted within the lab.
Many academic departments have PC Lab Coordinators available to assist in scheduling and using the PC labs. Check with the PC Lab Coordinator for specific procedures related to departmental labs.
Most departments also have Student Technical Assistants (STAs). STAs are available to assist with general software questions as well as to report equipment and network related problems. It is the responsability of the student to learn the software.
The Department of Information Technology works hard to keep tha PC Labs functioning properly, but we need your help and cooperation. The following guidelines must be observed.
