The Tech Computer Center administers two kinds of rooms.
- Open labs are for general use anytime.
- Classrooms are scheduled through the Registrar.
For scheduling information, see the
list of TCC-managed
For a table showing all the open labs and classrooms and their
equipment, see Workstation and server inventory.
Open lab policies
- Leave all the workstations powered up at all times.
- Use only your own personal TCC account. Accounts are
not to be shared. For more information, see the
`Policy for Computer Accounts'.
- Open labs are quiet rooms. If you need to listen to
audio, use headphones.
- Food, beverages, and other liquids are permitted
so long as they don't damage equipment or lead to a dirty
environment. Keep all food and liquids below the
level of the keyboard to avoid damage from accidental spills.
- Arcade-style gaming, such as World of Warcraft, is not
permitted in open labs. Fidel 130 is the sole exception:
computer gaming is permitted there so long as it does not interfere
with other people getting academic work done. If all
workstations are in use, gamers must relinquish their workstation
on request by users who have legitimate work to do.
- Direct laptop connections via Ethernet cable are authorized
only in Speare 14, and at classroom instructor workstations.
Do not disconnect or reconfigure TCC
workstations or network connections.
- Unclaimed printouts are available in Speare 14 for
at least a week after printing. Older printouts will
- The TCC does not supply CD-R or DVD recording media.
The TCC is not responsible for media that fail to burn
- Some workstations are designated as Linux-only servers.
People frequently use these stations as remote login servers.
Do not turn off or reboot these workstations. For a list
of the Linux-only servers, refer to the Workstation and server inventory.
- The hours in Fidel 130 are restricted by both the hours of the
Fidel building and the times the TCC help Desk is staffed (see Tech Computer Center Hours and Facilities). The hours for this room will be posted at the room
number plaque for this room.
