The SCC manages the open lab located in rooms C-595 and C-598 which contains a total of 95 state-of-the-art computers, 6 printers and 1 scanner. All equipment is regularly monitored and maintained by a highly trained staff. At the beginning of each semester, a standard operating system configuration and software is installed to ensure that all computers remain up-to-date. Emergency maintenance is also performed during the night and on weekends to avoid any downtown during the semester when the number of users is high. The lab is available to current students and alumni and a valid Student ID is needed to gain access. Because of the high volume of students who are in need of the lab, it cannot be reserved for classes.
