Computing facilities at CCRI are available to all currently enrolled students, faculty and staff. Students who have class-related assignments will be given first priority to use the computers in the labs.
The lab is an open lab, with the hours of operation posted in several locations and the web. Students can use the lab whenever it is convenient to them, but during heavy usage periods a 60-minute time limit will be imposed and a waiting list established. Students that are asked to finish up after their time is complete should do so immediately.
During holidays and breaks, normal schedules change. Please check the Computer Lab Holidays page for holiday and break schedules.
Installation of software by students is not permitted in the labs.
Cellular phones and pagers should be placed in quiet mode and used outside the lab.
Users needing to use documentation and/or material reserved by their instructors within the lab will need to leave adequate identification when they check out the material. The acceptable forms of identification are a Student ID or a driver’s license.
Staff and student employees are available in the labs to answer general questions and assist with software and hardware problems. It is the responsibility of the student to learn to use the software and know the information related to class assignments. Documentation and tutorials are available here .
Although the College employs various measures to protect the security of its computing resources and of its user accounts, users should also engage in "safe computing" practices. This might be done by protecting their passwords, changing passwords regularly, and logging out of their accounts before leaving the lab.
Students using the lab must conduct themselves in a manner in keeping within the rules of conduct as described in Policy on the Responsible Use of Information Technology.
Problems with hardware or software should be reported to the Staff Assistant or the lab manager immediately so that repairs can be expedited.
Any concerns addressing the Information Technology policy, procedures, or staff members in relation to the Academic Computer Labs should be sent via email to [email protected]
