Computer Science Labs

Computer Science Labs

The department operates labs in the Love building and the Carothers building. The primary computer labs available to CS students are the Majors Lab and the Grad Lab.

Computer labs are in enclosed spaces. If you are concerned with the Corona Virus safety,  we strongly recommend you wear a high quality mask. High quality masks include N95/KN95/KF94 masks. Cloth masks are less effective in filtering out of the viruses.

About the Majors Lab

The Majors Lab is located in LOV025 inside lobby of LOV006 in the basement. It is available for Computer Science major students. The lab is a staffed computer lab with fixed hours. On a space-available basis, other students currently taking a CS course may also use the lab. A valid CS account is required for access computers.

To use the lab, please make sure:

  1. Do not bring food or fountain drinks into the lab.
  2. No trash bin in the lab. Please take your trash to outside trash bins  and  keep the lab clean.

Thirty six computers with 24 inch monitors are available to students. All computers are dual boot to Windows 10 and Linux Mint.

Also available is a laser printer (named ‘majors’) and a scanner with top feeder. Undergraduate students can print up to 250 pages for free each semester.

In the back of the lab, there is an area for use of your own laptop. There are two 24 inch monitors with HDMI cables students can connect to their laptops.

The phone number to the Majors Lab is 644-6097.
