Computer Labs & Classrooms

Classroom Technology

Each traditional classroom on campus is configured with standard technology. This includes a computer for the instructor and a ceiling-mounted LCD projector. Access to wireless network services is also available in classrooms. Any problems with wireless coverage and signal should be reported to the IT Help Desk at helpdesk@middlesexcc.edu or 732-906-4251.


Computer Labs

The College supports close to 2,000 computer lab systems across sixty computer labs and mobile laptop carts. The IT Department develops, tests and maintains software images for each computer lab in collaboration with academic departments. Each semester, the IT Department contacts academic departments requesting any software changes required for upcoming semesters. This provides faculty the opportunity to switch to the latest versions of applications for use in coursework. As with all MCC technology resources, use of the computer labs must be in accordance with the Acceptable Use of Computer Network, Resources and Facilities policy.

Open Lab
There are 99 workstations in the library, with 24 housed in Open Lab Room 002. For current operating hours check the Library Calendar.

Adaptive Computer Lab
The College has an extensive Adaptive Computer Lab equipped with state of the art hardware and software to assist students with disabilities. The lab is located in JLC 243 and is staffed by a full-time lab coordinator.

Academic Department Labs
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 responsibility of the student to learn the software.
