Computer Lab Information

Residence Services understands the computing needs of our resident students. As an added service to students, the Residential Technology staff maintain five computer cluster labs located in our residence halls. The current minimum system configuration is as follows:

Pentium 4, 3.0GHz, 80G hard disk, 512MB RAM, DVD/CDRW and 17 inch flat panel display. Each system is loaded with Microsoft Windows XP, Microsoft Office 2007, SPSS, AOL Instant Messenger, MSN Messenger, Yahoo Messenger, and CD/DVD burning software.

The labs are located in the following areas: 
Eastway (8 Computers)
Verder Hall (19 Computers)
Tri Towers (14 Computers)
Twin Towers (14 Computers)
Allerton Apartments (4 Computers)

In an effort to keep up with technology changes, these labs are intended to be evergreen and when possible, upgraded on a 3-4 year cycle.

To print in any of Kent State's computer labs, you will need to bring your flashcard in order to pay for printed pages (7 cents per page). There are three ways to add money to your FlashCard: Visit room 104 in the Kent Student Center and make a deposit via check, credit card, or cash. Use cash to add money at one of the DART machines. (There are three on campus. The first is located on the first floor of the University Library, the second in the first floor lobby of the Kent Student Center adjacent to the Student Organization offices, and the third, on the second floor of the Business Building next to the computer lab.) Add money to your account online (you can also check your balances) by going to the FlashCard Website.
