Computer Lab Booking

Service Description

The Discovery Commons has three computer labs which are equipped with laptops and internet access. These labs can be booked by Staff and Faculty to facilitate classes, special seminars, exams and tests. The rooms are :

• MSB 3281 (44 seats)
• MSB 3173 (20 seats)
• MSB 3287 (40 seats)

Advance booking is required to secure a computer lab. Please note that we reserve the right to assign priority to certain programs or types of use, and also the right to re-assign rooms at any time. If we do need to re-assign a room, we will provide as much advance notice as possible, and will make every effort to re-locate your booking in an acceptable alternate location (though we cannot guarantee this). Regular weekday hours are 8 am to 5 pm.

The computers are running Windows 7, and have Microsoft Office Professional 2010 and a variety of browsers (IE9, Firefox, Chrome, and Safari) installed, along with a range of other educational software. Certain other software titles (SPSS, SAS, etc.) may be available on certain subsets of computers; to find out more, contact the Service Desk. See the Links below for a link to a page with more information on the software on these computers, and also a guideline on the installation of additional software. Whiteboard and blackboard supplies are available from the service desk for use during the meeting or class.
