Computer Labs

Our guiding principles as we prepare for fall semester are a) the health and safety of all: students, faculty, staff, and the greater community; and b) how to balance our resources to best meet demand and enable remote learning. Meeting these goals requires some changes to our services. Read how we've changed our services in our COVID-19 overview document."
