Southern’s three computer labs are maintained and staffed by the School of Computing, giving you opportunity to test out your troubleshooting skills on campus.
There are more than 75 modern personal computers that run state-of-the-art operating systems with the latest programming tools, as well as software and hardware development environments and computer applications. Because Southern is a member of the Microsoft Developer Network Academic Alliance, computing students can access many of these tools on their personal computers without any cost.
All 75 computers in Southern’s three computer labs are connected with a gigabit network, via Windows and UNIX servers, and access the Internet through Southern's 150 Mbps connection. There are also scanners, printers, and plotters at your fingertips, and Wi-Fi access is available on most of the campus, so you can hone your computer science skills almost anywhere you please.
This lab is the perfect place for junior and senior computing majors to do serious programming assignments. High-powered workstations are included, as well as a "laptop landing zone" with wired Internet access.
