A current and valid Columbia Campus Card ID is required for admittance by all.
The labs have 94 Dual-Boot iMac computers, which students can choose their preferred operating system: Mac OS X Lion or Windows 7, to complete their tasks. Open Labs provides black and white laserjet printers and scanners. Applications include: Microsoft Office and Adobe CS 6 Design & Web Premium. Please see the individual lab pages for more detailed information on installed software.
Lab Workers are on duty in all open labs to help students, faculty, and alumni with check-in, printing, and additional questions. Tutors are available to assist students with assignments, projects, and troubleshooting computing problems and using applications.
