Computers for Student Use


The college provides a large number of computers for student use. The computers are paid for using Technology Fee funds and are provided to support the academic needs of students. Recreational computing is allowed but should be limited during peak usage times to help insure others can use a computer for their academic work.

All use of the college's computing resources are subject to our policy on Acceptable Use of Campus Technology.

Computers for student use are located in a variety of places on campus. If you find a space locked please call 3444 from a campus phone to report the problem to the IT Service Desk.
