Computer labs are arranged by tier, with Tier 1 labs being general-use classrooms, bookable through the campus academic scheduling process and equipment life cycling funded through IT Services. Tier 2 and lower are department-specific, restricted for booking and equipment life cycling the responsibility of the department.
Computer labs vary in size from 16 stations up to 41 stations.
Evolving hardware and software requirements for computer labs must be socialized as soon as possible as capital planning is cyclic and hardware upgrades are planned on a multi-year cycle.
All computer labs come pre-loaded with basic software such as Microsoft Office and Adobe Acrobat Reader. Individual labs may also have a variety of other specific software installed to meet instructional needs, through a request process by the programs or courses scheduled to use the specific space. A list of available software is provided below.
