Pay-for-Print is coming Fall 2010!

 Each year, over 4 million pages are printed in interdisciplinary labs and approximately 400,000 pages are wasted each semester. Students are charged a $5 'paper fee' to cover the costs of printing, but most students print far less than what the fee covers and end up subsidizing the few who print far more. To address the issues of waste and fairness, all student computer labs (including college labs) will utilize a “pay-per-page” system starting in Fall 2010. Read more about Pay for Print.

Labs :: Student Computing Laboratories/Workstations

There are about 1,100 computer workstations available to students at Humboldt State University. Some of these are single workstations, others are in computing laboratories managed by departments for discipline-specific instruction and use, some are in laboratories managed by Academic Computing and available for general campus use, and others are in facilities managed by service units that provide information and online services to students (e.g., the Testing Center). No matter how these workstations are situated and managed, they must be reasonably accessible.

Labs :: Lab Use Conditions

All users of Humboldt State University's computing lab resources are responsible for the well-being and continued availability of the computing, network, and information resources we use. Ensuring a pleasant and productive working environment for all users requires that each user of the computing lab facilities abides by the California State University Responsible Use Policy.

Log in to myHumboldt

Humboldt State University is committed to ensuring that all users of the interdisciplinary computing lab facilities have a positive and productive lab experience. Please do your part by not disrupting others or modifying workstations, and help us keep the labs free of spills and messes. Any problems should be reported to lab management using the online form.

Labs :: Lab Event Scheduling

You'll find all the information you need to schedule an event in an ITS-managed lab on this page; if you're reserving a facility for use by an off-campus organization, please follow the instructions under Off-Campus Groups.

Labs :: Software Requests

When you schedule time in a Humboldt State University computing lab, you'll need to make sure that the software you need will also be installed and available at your scheduled time and facility. Your department coordinator can help you to determine what is available. If you need to request additional software, use the ITS Lab/Smart Classroom Software Request Form and submit it with your scheduling request so your software installation can be scheduled for the correct facility.
