Library computers

We have 300 computers

Most of our computers are in our six labs on the first and second floors and most of these labs are also used for classes. View the schedules for these labs (rooms 111B,  216A, 217C, 217D.) There are also open computers throughout the library, check out our computer availability maps.

Installed software

You asked … if we could do anything to make the slow-starting computers faster.

We listened … and removed some of the larger programs from most of the computers in the library.

Need GIS, AutoCad or SolidWorks?
The GIS and CAD software is still available on approximately 50 computers. Any computer with the orange ‘GIS-CAD’ emblem has GIS and CAD software installed. To view available software on each type, check out the software page.
