Open Access Student Labs

 The Instructional Technology and Desktop Services team manages and operates two open access student labs for WCU students.

  • Forsyth 313
    • Regular Hours: open Monday – Friday from 8am – 6pm
    • Summer/Holiday Hours: Closed

Computers are setup with standard software and some also have specialized software. See the labs hardware page to see what types of technology are available in the open access student labs.

The Technology Commons is staffed to assist students with computer troubleshooting, software and technology training, and the use of the lab computers. This space is ideal for collaboration and relaxation, visit our page to learn more! 

Forsyth 313 is not staffed and is accessed via CatCard.

Open access student labs are maintained and supported by Student Technology fees, which are included with each student's tuition. These spaces are designed for student use and collaboration.

Security cameras are present in both labs. View our lab rules and policies page for basic guidelines.
