Computer Lab Hours

Lab Infrastructure

The Law Center maintains two computer labs. These labs are located in rooms 136 and 168.

Lab 1 (Westlaw / Lexis Lab) – room 136

Lab 2 (Student Lab) – room 168

Pay To Print

The student computer labs have a total of four laser printers for use with the computers in the lab. Each law student will receive a specified number of free pages per academic year, and any printing over the specified number will be at a cost to the student of $0.03 per page.

We make every effort to keep the printers in good working order. However, you may receive pages that are of poor quality due to low toner or other printer malfunction. You can have these pages credited back to your account by showing the poor quality pages to the lab attendant.

It is your responsibility to log on and off the computer you are using each time you use the lab. If you forget to log out and another student prints using your account, you are responsible for those pages. If you think another student knows your user ID and password, please contact the ITSS Help Desk or change your password.

Think carefully before printing. You will be charged for all print jobs. Consider the following tips:
