CIT operates computer labs all across campus and virtual computer labs in the cloud.

Public Computers and Computer Labs in Fall 2020

There are many gaps in our knowledge of how COVID-19 spreads, but spending lots of time in close proximity to other people and using shared objects like computer keyboards, mice, and printers may increase the odds of transmission. CIT is rethinking how computer labs will look this year to help reduce the likelihood of a disease outbreak associated with these spaces.

Virtual Computer Lab Software

You can use the web browser on your personal computer to access software that has traditionally been available in the physical, on-campus computer labs in our Virtual Computer Labs.

Adobe Creative Cloud, Microsoft Office 365, SPSS and other general software is available on all of our virtual desktops. Specialized STEM virtual desktops have additional software installed that is specific to the academic disciplines which use that virtual desktop. Visit the Virtual Computer Lab Software page for a complete list of available software.

The chart below lists computer lab spaces on campus, whether they have Mac or Windows computers in them, and whether they will be open or closed during Fall 2020. 

The software currently available in the labs listed as "closed" will be available through our virtual computer labs this semester.
