Please note that computer labs close early for holidays and have special hours during exam weeks. Check for signs on the lab doors for any changes.

Why are some labs closed during normal lab hours?
Teaching labs are frequently closed for class use. Signs are posted on the outside of lab doors indicating the schedule of lab classes for that quarter. Lab 2110 is most frequently used as a computer classroom. Please use the LCB Calendar to see what has been scheduled for these labs.

Why are labs closed between semesters?
The Lindner College of Business Computer labs are closed at the end of each semester and for the duration of the break for maintenance. It is at this time that hardware and software upgrades are completed and routine maintenance and cleaning is performed. We apologize for any inconvenience. If you need to use a computer during break, the computers in the library are always available.

Lab Policies


We pride ourselves on keeping our labs a clean, pleasant, and productive environment in which to learn and as such have instituted the following policies to help achieve this goal. Users are responsible for reading and accepting the policies before using any of the Carl H. Lindner College of Business computer labs.

Access

All currently-registered students, faculty, and staff may access Lindner computer labs. Accounts are created within 48 hours of class registration, and no additional activation of accounts is required. All computers must be accessed using the student's central login. Students are not permitted to use the labs outside of regular lab hours.

Food, drink, and tobacco

Food, drink, and tobacco in any form (smoking, vaping, and smokeless products like dip or snuff)  are prohibited at all times to maintain the safety and cleanliness of computer labs. Anyone disregarding this policy in the labs will be asked to dispose of them; users who don't comply will be asked to leave the lab and may lose their lab privileges.

Noise

Noise must be kept to a minimum. Neither loud conversations nor audio devices without headphones are permitted. Cellular phone use is also prohibited.

Supplies

Students will be provided limited office supplies as a courtesy. Staplers and staples are not to be taken from the supply table or removed from the lab. Students that abuse these amenities will lose their lab privileges.

Hardware and equipment

Workstations are available on a first come, first served basis. No reservations will be accepted. Users are not permitted to modify lab hardware in any manner, nor to install software on lab systems. If you have a special request, please see the student worker on duty.

All systems have an easily-accessible USB hub so students can load and save their work. Students also have the option of using their University-provided OneDrive account for accessing class files and homework. If assistance is needed with this process, please see a lab attendant. Users are not restricted from saving documents or projects locally; however, all data will be deleted when the user logs off. Users are required to logout after they are done using the workstation.

Students may use the WEPA printing system for their printing needs. There is a WEPA station in each of these locations: 

  • Ground floor, north end of building nearest old Linder Hall
  • Second floor hallway near the elevators
