Lab Policies

  1. Computer Science labs are only open to students enrolled in Computer Science classes and students enrolled in a program supported by the Department of Engineering and Computer Science.
  2. Scheduled classes have priority. ECS students may get tutoring during hours according to the schedule, but must be respectful of scheduled classes.
  3. Lab Technicians. When using lab computers, students can get help from the Lab Technicians. Report to Lab Technicians with any computer questions, errors, and functional problems. Never ask Lab Technicians to do your homework. However, if there is something you do not understand, they will try to help you.
