217 Student Computing Lab

. The 217 Lab is designed to meet the computing needs of undergraduate and graduate students. All tower computers in this lab are high end workstation class systems designed for computation. All desktop style computers are suited for general classroom activities. The contact for this lab is Ed Meyer.

A few notes about the lab: Please contact Ed Meyer for all software installation needs, and issues related to hardware or currently installed software. All local files must be saved in the student _documents or faculty _documents folders. These are public computers, so please backup your work to a USB key, CD, DVD, or GEO on a regular basis.
