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'). 2 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 id 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:
