Unless the schedule states otherwise, you can still use the lab during training sessions, as long as there are unoccupied seats, and you work quietly without disturbing the class. Training classes have first priority for seating in the lab.
Each station has the following software:
- Windows 7 Enterprise
- Microsoft Office 2010:
- Web Browsers:
- Internet Explorer
- Adobe Acrobat Reader
- Media software: You can play just about any type of audio or video file.

Where To Store Data
Each student has 1 GB of storage space on the school network. When logged on to a computer in the lab, this will show up as your H: drive.
It is important that you save all your data to your H: drive, or to a USB flash drive. Anything that is saved to the Windows desktop, or any other location on the hard drive, will be deleted when you log off of the system.
On the lab computers, the "My Documents" folder goes straight to your H: drive.
You can also access your H: drive from your laptop or home computer.
There are two printers each in the computer lab and the student lounge. Click here for full information about printing.
No food, drinks, or tobacco products allowed in the computer lab.
The Student Computer Lab is a Quiet Study Area. Because of the printers and other background noise, the lab isn't as quiet as other areas, however, the lab is a study area, and it is important to keep voices quiet out of respect for the other students in the lab, and the work they are doing.
Cells phones must be set to silent mode, or turned off. Cell phones may not be used in the Student Computer Lab, or elsewhere in the Library.
You must have a signed copy of the Acceptable Use Form on file. If you do not turn in the Acceptable Use Form, your network account will be disabled.
It is very important that you log off the computer when you are finished in the Student Computer Lab. Simply click the Start button, then click "Log Off".
Shortly after you log off, the system will reboot. When the system reboots, it runs a program which cleans up the hard drive, and puts the hard drive back the way it was before you started. When we have this many people all using these computers, this helps keep the computers happy and healthy.
