Computer Lab Equipment
Computer Lab software
We install software that automatically logs off the user after 10 minutes of inactivity. Personal files unsaved, or saved on the PC, are deleted when the computer reboots or the student logs off. Therefore, we recommend that you save your work frequently to your personal USB flash drive or in your GoogleApps folder. Files saved in GoogleApps folders are accessible via the Internet, on or off campus.
Computer lab rules. We strive to provide a quiet academic environment where students can study, practice skills presented in class, and complete homework assignments. Cell phone usage, food and beverages are not permitted in the computer labs. Please review the rest of the lab rules so you know our expectations for student conduct. Serious or repetitive violations of lab rules will be reported to the vice president of Student Services for disciplinary review. Our computer labs are equipped with cameras for student safety and security. Individual recreational computer use is permitted, but students working on assignments are given priority to computers when the lab is full. Additional computers for students are located in the Learning Assistance Center, the HCC Library, the Cafe on the Quad, the lounge area outside of Student Life (SA201), the Athletic and Fitness Center, and the DH first floor lounge.
Acceptable use of campus technology. When you register for classes at HCC, you agree to abide by certain rules and regulations when using college technology resources. For more information, click the link in this paragraph, scroll through the college policies to locate the acceptable use of campus technology policy or pick up a copy of the Student Handbook in the office of Student Life (SA201).
