For Students

Computer Labs

The Department of Computer Science and the Department of Mathematics and Statistics manage a lab for computer science and mathematics students in room 211 of the Petty Building. The computers in this lab are updated regularly, and contain general software as well as any specialized software needed for computer science classes. This lab is where computer science tutors are located, and is sometimes used for classes or special events.

In order to use this lab, students must have their computer account configured with the necessary login rights — if you need to have this set up, please check with the Computer Science office in Petty 167.

Specialized Computer Science Labs

There are a variety of special-purpose labs run by faculty in the department, including labs for work in human-computer interaction, networking and security, and databases. Faculty use these labs in support of their research and for special projects, and access to the labs is for students involved in those activities.

UNCG General Access Computer Labs

The University runs a number of open-access computer labs distributed around campus that any UNCG student can use. These labs contain modern systems and have a lot of useful software installed, including development tools. One lab is conveniently located for computer science students in Petty 222, and is open during the day Monday-Friday. For late night and weekend computer access, students can use the “SuperLab” in the Jackson Library. A full list of labs and hours of operations is available at the ITS Lab Hours web page.
