Computing on Campus: Computer Lab Rules

Hours, locations, and information about using the undergrad and Business School Computer Labs on campus.

Computer Lab Security

  • Suffolk's Computer Lab facilities are open to Suffolk Students and Employees.
  • Be prepared to provide your Suffolk (student or employee) ID number whenever you contact the Help Desk for assistance. 
  • The Suffolk ID number is on the ID card provided to each student and employee upon joining Suffolk University.
  • We cannot grant access to any account or reset a password without your Suffolk ID number. 

Computer Lab Rules

1. Absolutely no food or drink is allowed in the lab.


2. Printing in the lab is for course-related work only. Please review your work before printing to avoid wasting paper and toner and please do not print your personal work. This includes personal Internet downloads and email. If your work did not print out the first time, there may be a problem with the printer; do not attempt to print again until you have checked with a lab attendant. Continuous print-jobs tie up the printers and affect everyone’s print requests.


3. Due to licensing costs, the software installed on each computer is related specifically to courses taught here at the College of Arts & Science. There is a security system installed to prevent installation or removal of programs from the lab and classroom computers. If you have a request for a specific software program, please contact the CAS Academic Technology Department for help.


4. We ask that you be considerate of fellow students waiting to use a machine. Remember, some people need to complete work assignments and do not have a computer at home. Preference will be given to those who need a computer for class-related work over students surfing the web for personal use.


5. There is a lab attendant in the open lab at all times and he/she can assist you with functional use of the equipment and basic questions about the software. Please be aware that the lab attendant is not a tutor. If you need help with understanding or completing an assignment, please see you instructor for help.


6. Finally, please remember to clean up after yourself, close out of all programs, and remove your disk or USB flash drive.
