General Access Computing Labs

The General Access Computing Labs (GACLs, pronounced gackles) offer Windows and Mac computers for students, faculty and staff.

Computers in the GACLs host a wide range of software including Microsoft Office, a full suite of math and statistical software, AutoCAD, and open source alternatives to Microsoft Office and multimedia products. For more information, see the complete list of GACL software.

All students are subject to a printing quota in campus public labs. Learn more about the printing quota. Large format color printing, scanning and copying is available in the Student Technology Center.

Laptops with computer lab software are available for checkout by students, faculty and staff who present a University ID at the Mullins Library or Student Technology Center.
