If you qualify, you will be given an account on cs.uwp.edu.
Before using the account you must fill out and sign a UNIX Account Policy Form and do the initial setup of your account. For most people, this is done in the first lab of the CSCI 145 or 241 course. If for some reason you did not activate your account, contact the CS System Administrator for assistance.
Typically, all machines are powered up, with the monitors turned off.
Anyone with access to the lab may use a locker if any are available. The lockers are assigned on a first come, first served basis. In order to use a locker, you must register your intent with the CS System Administrator.
The CS System Administrator is Heather Miles. Her office is MOLN D120C (inside the CS Computer Lab). A message could be taped to the door or put under the door if she is not there. Her phone number is 595-2592. You can contact her by email here.
You must have obtained your Ranger Card and activated it through the Ranger Card office in order to access the lab. You will need to swipe your card in the card reader on the door and then type in your PIN.
If you do not have a Ranger Card, you will find the Ranger Card Office in Student Center D111. To activate the card, follow the instructions that came with the card. If necessary, contact the CS System Administrator to make arrangements for entry into the CS Computer Lab.
