Lab Schedule for Fall 2020: Closed
The labs are officially closed for Fall due to COVID-19.
Computer Lab Locations
Access: The Undergraduate Computing Labs are located in the basement of Nelson Hall. On weekends, the labs can be accessed only through one door at the back entrance to the building. This is the door facing the small parking lot behind Nelson Hall. You must walk down the steps or ramp to access this door.

What happens during printing
Wolfcopy is a service whereby printing management and costs are completely handled by another campus unit and is paid for by the consumer (students) on a per page basis.
When a user elects to print a job from one of the COM Computing Lab Facilities (undergraduate or graduate), the job is spooled (sent) to a queue located on one of Office of Information Technology (OIT) systems (this means that it has to travel out of the building). The OIT system processes the print job, determines what printer it is destined for, and sends it off to be printed.
As with any system there are always possible undesired side effects. The systems that process the print jobs and talk to the printers are located in buildings other than Nelson. If those systems or the pathway between us is experiencing problems, we will see that manifest itself in our labs.
