Computer Labs Heading link

Computer room facilities are available on the second floor of SRH, the second floor in Commons South, the first floor of both MRH & TBH and the second floor of JST. Check at your Area Residence Life Office for details regarding room usage. Hours are subject to change, especially during semester break periods. Academic work has priority over any other kind of activity. These computer labs are operated by ACCC; if a problem arises, please notify the ACCC office.


Campus Housing is proud to provide free printing to resident students in computer labs within residence halls. Students may NOT EXCEED 750 sheets of paper printed per semester or 50 pages at any one time. Any amount over this limit will result in a $0.12/sheet charge to a student’s university account. If a resident has a guest that needs something printed, the resident must print the item using their own NetID. Non-residents are not allowed to use the printing resources within the residence hall. Failure to comply will result in a charge to the non-resident’s student account at $0.12/sheet, no later than the end of the current semester. Residents can check their printing total on the Housing Dock ( If there are problems with any printer within a residence hall computer lab, please contact the nearest residence life office.

Lounges Heading link

There are areas designed as study lounges for those times that you do not want to study in your room. Some of these spaces also have TVs available. Priority is given to students who are studying, but spaces can be reserved for programs. The furniture in these lounges belongs to all residents. Taking furniture from a study lounge into your room, apartment or cluster constitutes theft and will be dealt with accordingly.
