Lab Background

Computer Labs

Read an important notice from CSU General Counsel Christine Helwick about peer to peer file sharing.

Information Technology (IT) provides two types of computer labs for CSUDH students, faculty, and staff:

  • A general purpose lab complex in Welch Hall, offering PC and Macintosh computers and a wide variety of commonly used software. The complex includes a large open access lab in WH D160 that is available for drop-in use plus four instructional labs that can be reserved for classes. Student lab consultants are on duty in WH D160 whenever the lab is open.
  • The Instructional Media Center, located in LIB C121. This lab features PC computers. Come to IMC to view films and video that have been reserved for you by your professor. This lab also provides network access to the foreign language lab. When not being used for these purposes, IMC computers are available; such use is "bumpable", however, by anyone needing to access instructional media.

There is no charge for eligible CSUDH students to use IT's open access computer labs. Associated Students, Inc. (ASI) provides generous grants that contribute to lab upgrades through the student technology fee. Labs cannot be used by persons who are not eligible.
