Computer Lab Policies

Access Policy

All currently enrolled students and employees of the college are permitted to use the Otis Computer Center during posted Open-Access hours. 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

Data Storage

Individuals are responsible for backing up and storing all personal data. The Computer Center provides access several types of removable media devices for data storage.

The network “Transfer” volume is for transferring data via the network only and may not be used for data storage. Any data located in the Transfer Volume may be deleted at any time without notice.
