Faculty may reserve the instructional computing labs Alter B2, Alter B15, Elet 101, Cohen 108, and Smith G21 by completing the Lab Reservation Request Form above. The interactive classrooms Alter 223, Hailstones 4, Hailstones 15 and Cohen 190 are scheduled through the Registrar's office.
To ensure fair and optimal use of these facilities, the following policies will be observed.
Computer labs will not be used for lectures, except in those instances when the computer is an integral instructional tool. Priority will be given to academic instruction over institutional training when requests are submitted concurrently. Then priority will be given to classes in which the computer is a primary and essential tool of instruction, as in Information Systems and/or computer-assisted writing or desktop publishing. Subsequently, reservations will be accepted on a first come, first served basis.
Reservations must be made at least one week in advance. This is to allow time for notifying open-access users of lab reservation schedules. Reservations will not be accepted more than six months in advance. Except for standing reservations for classes where the computer is a necessary and integral tool of instruction, or where the computer is necessary for use in a final exam, reservations will not be accepted during the last two weeks of any semester and during Finals Week. Lab reservations are set for a single semester. Reservations will adhere to the standard class schedules posted by the Registrar’s office.
All individuals entering the labs during open access time may be required to show their student ID, if requested to do so.
All lab users are required to scan their own media for viruses before using lab equipment. Individuals whose media repeatedly infect University equipment will not be permitted to use the labs.
The lab printers should not be used as substitutes for copy machines. If students are required to have large documents for class, those documents should be provided to them before they are sent to the lab. Problems with the lab equipment should be reported immediately to the Lab Support Desk at 745-3557.
Thank you for your cooperation in helping to make the computer labs accessible and user friendly for all.
