Student Computer Labs: Access Levels/Costs & Reservations

Access Levels/Costs

ITSS offers two computer lab access levels, Basic and Full.

  1. Basic access computers are available for use by all currently-enrolled students, staff, and faculty.
  2. Full access computers are available to students who have paid the $71.75 per semester fee, which is automatically billed to students who have a class meeting in a full access lab. These full access classes have the fee automatically charged to them.

The software in both Basic and Full Windows and Mac labs is listed on the lab software page.

Enrolled students can purchase full access by going to UMD Stores, paying the fee shown below, and bringing the receipt to the ITSS TechCenter in Kirby Plaza 165. The TechCenter will create a request ticket, and your access will be set up by the next working day.

Full Access Via UMD Stores
Duration Amount
One Day $6.00
Two Weeks $20.00
Semester or Summer $71.75

Faculty and TAs have full lab access if they are teaching a class that meets in a lab.

Lab Reservations

For-Credit Courses That Pay the Lab Fee

Instructors of for-credit classes can reserve computer labs outside of their usual assignment by contacting room scheduling at rooms@d.umn.edu or following the instructions on the room scheduling web page.

For-Credit Courses That Do Not Pay the Lab Fee

One lab session of up to two hours per semester is free for any credit course. If a class needs a lab more than once per semester, the class needs to pay the lab access fee. Instructors of for-credit classes can reserve computer labs by contacting room scheduling at rooms@d.umn.edu or following the instructions on the room scheduling web page.

Non-Credit Internal Events

These special events can rent a computer lab and will be billed via EFS. Please refer to the library lab rental page. If you would like a particular lab other than library rooms, please contact room scheduling at rooms@d.umn.edu or following the instructions on the room scheduling web page.

Non-University Events

Please go through the library for non-university events.
