The Lab Assistants are hired to assist students with minor computer problems and to keep the labs orderly and clean. The Lab Assistants are instructed not assist students with resolving problems relating to coursework. A student should seek the assistance of their instructor for these issues.
The Computer Labs are for educational purposes only. Lab users failing to comply with the lab guidelines may lose privileges to campus lab facilities.
