Yes. The Computer Lab Policies and Rules are:

  • Campus computer labs are for use by University of Jamestown students, faculty, and staff.
  • Food and beverages are not allowed. They can damage our equipment.
  • The first priority for computer lab equipment is instruction and class assignments.

Do I have to sign in to use the labs?

While labs are available to use for students, faculty and staff when class is not in session, users will need to use their campus credentials to login to the computers.

Can I install software on the lab computers?



Can I save files on the lab computers?

Yes, but only temporarily and only while you are currently working on the computer. The hard drive of a lab computer is locked down and when you log out or if the computer is shut down for any reason (such as a power outage) all changes to the hard drive will be erased and you will lose all your data. Instead of using the hard drive use your U: (user) drive. Each student is given 200mb of storage space on their U: drive. Think of the lab computer hard drives as a place to store files temporarily, while you are working on them, but be sure to move them to your U: drive and/or a disk when you’re finished.

How do I get a job working in the labs?

If you are interested in working in the computer center as a Restech contact the Helpdesk Manager.

Can I just go in and use the labs?

Many of the computer labs are used as classrooms, so be sure you check the schedule posted outside the door before entering. Do NOT enter a lab while a class is in session.

Can I print something out in color?

Yes, there is a color printer called libmain located in the Library. Use these instructions to connect to the printer. The cost per page to print at a color printer is $0.25. This is the case even if the document you are printing is only black and white.

Can I hook my laptop up in the labs?

Yes. All labs on campus have wireless internet available. For directions on how to hook up to the campus wireless click here.
