Office of Information Technology computing labs are located conveniently throughout campus in many academic buildings. These labs are available to all Auburn University students and employees on a first-come-first-serve basis. To use the OIT computing labs, you will need your username and password. The OIT computing labs are open whenever the building is open; however, labs may be closed for special events on campus, when a class is reserved for the lab, or for routine maintenance.
The lab machines are secured by a fiber optic anti-theft system and video surveillance. If you should accidentally set off the alarm, use the lab phone to report the problem to the OIT HelpDesk at 844-4944 and wait for someone to turn off the alarm.

To reserve an OIT computing lab for instructional use, notify the Manager of PACS Support at least one week in advance. If the requested use of the lab involves the installation of software, the request should be made at least two weeks in advance.
It should be noted that the primary use of the OIT computing labs is for student walk-in instructional computing. While some labs may be reserved by University departments for instructional purposes, the hours available for reservation are limited. Departments and colleges with strong demands for instructional computing labs are urged to establish their own facilities to meet their own specialized needs.
IT computing labs may not be reserved for events that charge a registration fee that is not included in University tuition.
All of our computing labs are currently running the Windows 7 operating system. Other software installed depends on the lab. Please see the chart below.
