In-person Computer Lab Access
Many computer labs across campus have closed operation in an effort to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. Below are a few computer labs that we have verified their status for the Fall 2020 semester. Please visit their respective web pages for the most up-to-date information regarding the status of their environments. While on campus please be sure to follow the guidelines set out by UTD for the Comets Return to Campus. https://utdallas.edu/covid/students-families-info/student-safety/
Failure to abide by these procedures is a breach of the UTD Student Code of Conduct and will be reported to the Dean of Students.
ATEC Open Computer Lab (ATC 2.302)
The Open Lab is currently available for students to visit in person from 8:00am – 7:00pm Monday – Friday and 12:00pm – 5:30pm on Saturday and Sunday. The room capacity has been limited to 15 during the pandemic and these slots are available on a first-come first-serve basis. When visiting the Open Lab please observe the following rules:
Maintain at least 6ft. between you and others for social distancing.
Please use only the door marked “Entrance” to enter the lab and only the door marked “Exit” to exit the lab.
In order to use a computer please talk to the Lab Tech at the service window. They will check out a mouse and keyboard to you and assign you a machine. Please do not sit down at a machine until you have been assigned one by the Lab Tech.
When you are finished using the computer please return the mouse and keyboard to the Lab Tech at the window.
If there is a line at the window please make sure that you maintain 6ft. social distancing from the person in front of you in line. If a line forms out of the lab, please line up against the wall while maintaining social distancing.
