Printing to an OIT Lab Printer from Anywhere
Students can print PDF or TXT files on the networked printers in OIT computing labs from anywhere on campus! It's easy and convenient - and all web-based so you don't need to install anything. Just login and select the desired printer (black & white or color) from the drop-down menu. Standard printing fees will be applied to your eBill account - black & white printing is $0.07 per page and $0.50 per page in color.
There are 8 web accessible printers available in a variety of locations around campus. See www.auburn.edu/tigerprint for more information.
Reserving a Lab
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 XP SP3 operating system. Other software installed depends on the lab. Please see the chart below.

Installing specific software
If the use of a teaching lab requires the installation of discipline-specific software not currently available in the lab, the following policies apply:
- The software must be installed by OIT personnel (the assistance of the requesting instructor may be required).
- The software must be legal. It is the responsibility of the individual reserving the lab to obtain the correct number of legal copies or an appropriate site license.
- The software must not conflict with any software on the OIT support list (i.e., if software on the OIT support list would serve the same purpose, alternative software will not be installed).
- OIT will provide no instructional or technical support in the use of the software.
- OIT reserves the right to refuse any request for software installation.
During each semester, the OIT computing labs are open whenever the building is open. Sometimes, though, labs will be closed for special events on campus, whenever a class is reserved for the lab, or for routine maintenance. You can view each lab calendar above by clicking on the "View Calendar" link for the appropriate lab. Office of Information Technology computing labs are located conveniently throughout campus in many academic buildings.
Lab Security System
The machines in the OIT Labs are secured by a fiber optic anti-theft system. If you should accidentally set off the alarm, use the lab phone to report the problem to the OIT HelpDesk at 844-4944 (HelpDesk calls are forwarded to the OIT machine room operators after hours), then wait for campus security and someone from OIT to arrive to turn off the alarm.
