Account DetailsTo see your account details, visit Manage my OAL Account.
Texas A&M students and faculty have an Open Access Labs (OAL) account that provides them with the following:
Profile Directory Each account has a roaming profile that saves your customized settings, such as desktop background and bookmarks. When you log in to any OAL computer, your customized settings will appear. Your profile directory is stored separately from your H: drive and is set in size. If you receive an error message that mentions limited drive space, your profile directory may be too large. To fix this problem, use the Profile Repair Tool.
Printing Color printers, black-and-white printers and plotters are available to enrolled students. Some charges may apply.
Software Numerous software programs are installed on OAL computers for you to use, including Microsoft Office and the Adobe Suite.
Virtual Open Access Lab (VOAL) The VOAL allows you to use the Windows computers, including software, of the Open Access Lab remotely.
Personal web page (people.tamu.edu) People.tamu.edu allows students, faculty and authorized staff to publish a personal web page.
Over 1,300 computers (PCs and Macs), along with numerous scanners and video workstations, are available in OALs.
Video Workstations There are four video workstation PCs in the Student Computing Center (SCC) and two in the West Campus Library (WCL).
