Computer Labs

There are four computer labs for classroom instruction:

  • 203 (Mac/Windows Lab)
  • 205 (Windows Lab)
  • 211 (Windows Lab)
  • 221B (Windows Lab located in the back of the IRC)

Computer labs are available for open lab when not occupied by a class. They also have the same hours of operation as the IRC.

Students are able to use the computer lab in the IRC (221 White Hall) at any time during operating hours. The computers are on a first-come basis. This lab has 15 Dell and 5 Macintosh computers. Also available are 3 scanners and poster printing (cash or check, $6.00 a foot).

All labs have the capability to print to a black and white lab printer (FlashCard at $0.07 a page, cash at $0.10 plus tax a page). The color printer is located in 221 WTH and students need to either email the print job (including how many copies, how they plan to pay, and when they plan to pick them up) to ircehhs@kent.edu or put the file on a flash drive and bring it to the IRC (cash or check at $0.40 plus tax a page).

For more information about classroom equipment, please contact Julee Henry (Jahenry2@kent.edu). Faculty is asked to go to the Online Scheduler to check availability for labs and then contact a member of the IRC faculty or staff to schedule an open lab.
