Rahr Lab

Welcome to the Rahr Lab. For those of you who are new to the lab, this document will help you get started. For those of you who have already made the Rahr Lab your home, you should read this document in order to get the rules of the lab straightened out.


The Rahr Lab is primarily for students in Geography courses. The doors are open during normal working hours through the week, but people who need access in evenings and weekends can obtain the keycode for the door nearest Burke Lab. Contact the Departmental Administrator, Kelly Palmer.

Food and drink are not allowed in the Rahr Lab. This is because experience has shown that the place gets really messy, especially toward the end of the term, if pizza boxes and soda cans are allowed to accumulate there, and the keyboards get sticky. There is a lounge at the end of the hall, which is a more convivial place to hang out anyway.

If you must leave your workstation for an extended period (to get something to eat, for instance) please do not leave your work materials strewn about the desktop.

If you are done with your work and are leaving the lab, Please turn off your monitor. Please turn off your monitor by pushing the power button located on the lower right hand corner of the monitor. This will help conserve energy.

Back up your work. The easiest way to do this is to save important files to a personal device such as a flash drive.

Please be gentle with the equipment. If you are unsure how to reload paper in the printer, for instance, ask. Using force to reinsert the cassette will simply break it and we will have to obtain (another) replacement.

Do not let entropy take over:

  • If you open it, close it.
  • If you use it, put it back where you found it.
  • If you drop it, pick it up.
  • If you empty it, fill it up.
  • If you make it messy, clean it up.
