The Computer Center includes all the open-access labs, computer classrooms and Library computers. Computer classrooms are designated for scheduled classes primarily but may be used for open-access outside of the class schedule. It is up to each faculty member whether to permit other students to use the computers in a classroom during class time. Students may use the Open-Access Lab for course work and assignments only during posted hours. Extended-access hours are provided during the last two weeks of each semester and will be posted outside of the Computer Center. Students may also obtain written approval for after-hours access to designated labs from their department and Academic Computing Services. Please refer the After-Hours Access Policy for more information. The open-access hours for each semester are posted on the Computer Center main doors or by calling the ACS office
