URLCHS computer lab use schedule

Note: Check the schedule for the lab you wish to reserve, then contact Keith to make your reservation. Get your reservation in early to avoid booking problems. Faculty and staff can reserve the CHS Labs for any official university function (for example, class, orientation, training, testing, seminars). Priority is given to the departments that provide financial support for the labs. Other CHS and non-CHS depts/units will be booked if space is available, after the funding units have had an opportunity to make their bookings. To have new or updated software installed on lab machines, provide the Lab Manager with the software and any licensing paperwork by July 1st for inclusion of the software on the fall lab image.
