Computer Labs

Welcome to the UW-River Falls Computer labs web area.  Below you will find information about computer lab locations throughout campus.  Different types of labs have different access restrictions and may have different software configurations.

View the Computer Lab Software List to find out what and where software is available.

About General Access Labs

The General Access Labs may be used by any University student, faculty or staff member. Some General Access labs are sponsored by departments and are located throughout campus.

About Teaching Labs

Some of the computer labs which DoTS supports may be reserved for teaching and demonstration purposes. Use of a Teaching Computer Lab is appropriate when participants, as well as the presenter will be using computers. Each Teaching Lab is equipped with a teaching workstation and a projection unit and screen for displaying the presenter's computer screen.
The Teaching Labs are a wonderful resource for hands-on computer program training. Their use must be balanced, though, with the need for adequate general access computers for student use. For more information on this, see the Lab Reservation Policies.

About Department Labs

There are several Computer Labs on campus which are built and maintained to support the instructional program of a particular department on campus. These Computer Labs are not open to the general student population and will have specialized software and hardware to support a specific curriculum. In general, students will be instructed in their classes if they have one of these labs as a resource. Some classes even meet regularly in these labs.

About Residence Hall Labs

New for Fall 2013, collaborative stations are designated work areas strategically placed in designated halls throughout campus where students may hold meetings to collaborate on projects using multimedia. Each collaborative station provides a table with power outlets and adapters which connect to a large flat screen television, allowing users to display the content of their multimedia device on a larger screen for others in the room to view.
