Computer Lab Information

The MISL computer labs are available for general student use, and use by Graduate School of Education classes. The lab is not available for general use when there are classes in session. A schedule of classes using the lab is posted on the bulletin board outside the PC lab each month.

NOTE:  MISL Computer Labs will close on Thursday, June 11.  After we move to our new temporary facility we will have one lab that provides access to both Windows and Macinosh laptops, an ADA station, and computers for video editing.  It will also serve as a high tech classroom.  We hope to open this new space, the Dr. Joyce Petrie Memorial Technology Center, by July 1.

For Instructors:

To take advantage of equipment housed in one of the labs or the MISL classroom, reserve a space by submitting your request online:  online request form (linked here).

Assistance in returning equipment, putting chairs and tables back in their normal places, enforcing our 'no food or drink' policy, and policing the space you have been using is greatly appreciated.
