Lab Information and Policies


There are more than 30 computer labs on campus, both general-access public and program-specific specialty labs, with specialized software that meet the needs of specific courses.

Computer labs are open at various times and schedules are generally posted on each lab door. The Library lab is staffed by a lab consultant who can answer basic hardware, software, and printing questions.

Black and white laser printing is available in most labs. Color printing is available in the Library and the Friends 110 public computer lab. Student printing in the labs is managed by PaperCut software. Please see the Print Management website for more information about allowances and pay-for-print.
