Guidelines for Proper Lab Use

Mac Keyboard

Here are a few guidelines for using the ITS Computer labs. A lab consultant may ask you to leave the lab if you are violating one of these guidelines. Please be considerate of others working in the labs, and keep the equipment safe.


Please do not attempt to open the printers in the computer lab. If you need help, speak with a lab consultant or visit our Printing Help page.

Taking paper out of the paper trays is theft and is not allowed under any circumstances. If you need a blank page for scrap paper, print a blank page or take it out of the recycling bin.

Cell Phones

Because the labs are intended as a quiet work space to help students complete assignments, we ask that cell phone conversations be kept brief and unobtrusive, or moved outside the lab. Cell phone ring tones should be muted within ITS Computer Labs as well.


ITS lab computers don't usually have speakers, and if they do, we ask that you refrain from using them. You may use headphones, but keep the volume low enough so that those around you can't hear it.

Food And Drinks

University policy prohibits food and drinks besides water from being used in a general purpose classroom, including technology classrooms. While that policy does not include ITS Computer Labs, we ask that everyone make an effort to keep lab areas clean.
