The Student Computing Center (SCC) Open Access Lab is located in the Student Computing & Group Study Building, next to the parking garage and the Evans Library building. This facility provides convenient computer access and classrooms to students and faculty campus wide, as well as from Evans Library, the Peterson Building, the Pavilion, the Heep Building, and other locations in the north-eastern portion of the campus.
The SCC has three classrooms as well as group study areas in its two-story facility.
The information booth of the SCC handles all incoming calls and can provide customers with immediate help to some questions. If a customer requires further help, the CIS staff working at the information booth can direct customers to other sources of help (Help Desk, Handouts, etc...)
The Help Desk at the SCC is staffed by knowledgeable student workers available to answer any question a customer has. When immediate solutions cannot be found, the staff will find another means of answering the question by enlisting the help of another staff member, calling Help Desk Central, or consulting a manual. If all else fails, the staff can open a Keystone slip to have the question researched until an answer is found.
The resource desk contains any peripherals needed at the SCC. These peripherals are available on a check-out basis and must be returned immediately after use. The resource desk also houses many product manuals available for check out and the color and large-format printers of the SCC. Any special printing (Color, Large Format, Printouts over 100 pages) must be signed for by the customer at the resource desk.
The Student Computer Center's printrooms are located on the left side of the building on both the first and second floor. All printouts are filed via their logon-ID's.
