Students in a Computer Lab

See Also: Student Printing

TMCC provides free computer labs to TMCC students, faculty and staff. There is no fee to use the labs, although users may be asked to verify TMCC enrollment or employment. The public may use TMCC's Elizabeth Sturm Library computer kiosks for academic research; however, the public is required to pay for the use of paper products or other resources.

Guidelines in the Computer Labs at all Times

  • Absolutely no food or beverages are allowed at the computer stations.
  • Children are not to be left unattended in the labs.
  • Cell-phone conversation in the lab is prohibited. Emergency calls can be received, but the user must step outside of the Lab to continue the conversation.
  • Maintain a quiet work area: Loud boisterous behavior is not acceptable; the Lab is not a place to socialize, as it's distracting to others.
  • Viewing or printing pornographic material that can be viewed by others is not allowed in the Labs or Kiosks.
  • Head count and surveys: In order to effectively use technology resources, occasional head counts or surveys may be taken by on-site staff. Please provide them with your cooperation.
  • Closing time: The labs must close promptly at the scheduled time. Your cooperation would be greatly appreciated.

Computer Lab Software

U.S. Copyright Law and license agreements protect software available in the TMCC computer labs. Lab software is for use only on computers found in the lab. TMCC will monitor the usage to assure that it is used for a legitimate purpose as allowed by the U.S. Copyright Law. This monitoring will protect both TMCC and users of the software within the computer labs.
