Information Technology Services provides approximately 200 public workstations for academic and instructional use.  Most are located in campus computer labs and classroom podiums, however several are available in student lounges, Wiestling Student Center, the Library, and other areas.  To learn more about what each space offers, take a tour via the links at the left.

Each computer lab, podium computer, and public workstation offers a consistent computing experience.  Some specialized software packages may be available only in certain locations due to licensing restrictions.  All computer labs, as well as certain public locations, are equipped with a black and white laser printer.  Color printers are available in select locations.

To provide increased access to technology support, a new online chat service called LabChat is now available to the Penn State community in all computer labs and public workstations.  The service provides students, faculty, and staff with real-time technical assistance via online chat.  To launch a support session, double click the LabChat icon on the desktop, it looks just like the logo on the left.  Experienced lab consultants are on hand to answer support questions about a range of computing topics such as Penn State Access Accounts, popular software titles such as Microsoft Office, printing and more.  This service is great for those quick questions like 'How do I change the margins in my Word document?' or 'How do I insert a picture into Publisher?'.  If your question can not be solved via chat, a support ticket will be created to look into your issue.
