Student Computer Labs

OIT operates several student computing labs that are sometimes also used as classrooms. These spaces have a large number of computers, with the intent of providing one computer per student in the room. Labs may be purpose built so be sure to check the room listing to find a lab that will suit your needs.

How Do I Get Started?

Check the room schedules posted outside of each computer lab for the current schedule. These vary day to day so be sure to check back frequently. When classes are not in session, staff, faculty, and students are free to use the space.
