Computer Laboratory Information

The UMass Lowell Computer Science Department has three computer laboratories that can be used by any student enrolled in a Computer Science class (i.e. course number beginning with '91'). Two of these labs (308 and 310) are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Students can unlock the lab doors via their student i.d. card.

A student must have a valid computer science LINUX or campus windows account in order to use these lab computers. Please click here to find out how to get an account. 

These labs are located on the 3rd floor of Olsen Hall and are as follows: 

1. Olsen 308
This lab contains Apple iMac systems, PC systems and a network printer. The Apple systems dual boot OS X and Windows. The PC systems dual boot Windows and Linux. Linux and OS X can be accessed via the computer science user account. Windows can be accessed by the student.uml.edu user account. From the linux systems, students can access their linux home directories without needing to connect to the main linux server. Installed onto these systems are the standard set of editors, compilers, web browsers, office suite applications and other required software packages. 

2. Olsen 310
