Computer Labs

Beginning in fall 2014, Penn State students using on-campus computer labs will be able to enjoy a more consistent experience.  Students’ computer profiles (what they see when they log in and the files they have saved there) will travel with them, even if they are using a different lab or at another campus.  This benefit, along with the ability for wireless printing and printing from home, are now available as a part of Cooperative Lab Management, or CLM.

If you’re here because you're looking for a particular software package, view the Computer Lab Software Guide (.pdf) to see software availability by classroom.
