CCI Open Computer Labs

Hours & Availability

The College of Computing and Informatics maintains two computer labs, in Burson 239A and Woodward 120, that are open to all declared CCI majors and any students taking a class offered by one of the CCI departments during the term.    Room access is controlled by swiping your UNC Charlotte ID card.   The computer labs are generally available during the active school terms, but during some time slots, one of the two rooms may be restricted for course lab, testing or orientation purposes.    Notifications of availability are posted on the lab doors.   The lab may be closed on any day that UNC Charlotte is officially closed, or for maintenance during the spring for fall break periods.

If you are a CCI major, or student taking a class offered by CCI, and your card is not allowing you to gain access to any of the labs, please email or contact the IT Service Desk (704.687.5500) to have access investigated and corrected.

Lab Use Rules & Regulations

CCI majors and students taking a CCI offered course are granted swipe card access to the room and login permissions to the workstations, and may print in the two computer labs without any additional charge.  Students are prohibited from printing items for personal use, so all items being sent to the printer must be related to your UNC Charlotte academic career.   Printing is monitored using Papercut, and should not be abused.    Students are asked to be considerate and responsible in printing.
