Scheduling Labs

The computer labs are scheduled on a priority basis to provide an equal opportunity for students, faculty, and staff to use the lab facilities. Faculty and staff may schedule computer labs by contacting the Manager of IT Support Services. If you are interested in scheduling a lab for seminars or classes, see the guidelines listed below.

1.  Computer Center labs can only be reserved by a faculty member, faculty sponsored organization, or the Learning Resource Center.

  • To avoid scheduling conflicts and to better guarantee placement, those classes that have a semester-long lab component should have their lab reservations arranged by the Registrar’s office; reservations made in this manner always take precedence. (Faculty members who determine that they need a semester long computer lab reservation after the schedule has been set (or the semester has begun) may contact the Manager of IT Support Services to explore what options exist.)
  • Ad-hoc reservations should be brought to the attention of the Manager of IT Support Services and are scheduled on a first-come, first-serve basis. Two weeks advance notice is preferred.
  • Reservations needed during break periods (or between semesters) should also be brought to the attention of the Manager of IT Support Services. Like ad-hoc requests, these will be granted on a first-come, first-serve basis.

2.  Although all technology classrooms and lecture halls have an instructor PC, if you need an additional computer in the classroom for a demonstration, student presentations, etc., please contact the Copy and Multimedia Center (CMC) to schedule a portable classroom cart.

3.  The computer labs in Hammermill 135 CyberLounge and Lilley Library 4 are always “open” labs and are never reserved for instructional use. Other open lab times exist when reservations are not in place or if a class that had reserved a lab ends early. Refer to the reservation schedule posted outside the entrance to each lab.
