  • The lab for this class is in 105 Cory. If you are enrolled in the class, you will receive an account when you go to the first lab.
  • Lab access: You will need a white card key to get into the lab at all times, and into the building after hours. The lab is in 105 Cory, and Cory Hall is locked 6:30PM-7AM on weekdays, and on weekends and holidays. If you use the lab during off-hours, please be aware of your surroundings and take responsibility for your safety. If you do not already have a card key, go to 391 Cory or 387 Soda to get a new, white cardkey, and follow posted instructions. New cardkeys cost $20 ($15 refundable). See additional information about card keys.
  • Lab rules:
    • There is a Campus-only phone in the lab for use in emergencies. Since there will not be an instructor in the lab at all times, we stress that you need to be aware of your surroundings and take responsibility for your personal safety.

    • Report to the Lab instructor any malfunctioning equipment or software. If the lab instructor is not present, please log the specific problem in the dept log book.

    • Lab resources are to be used for course-related purposes only, altough modest usage for email and web browsing is permitted outside of scheduled lab sessions. Just be considerate. Do not run computer games or screen locks on the lab computers at any time, or your account will be disabled. Only EECS 20n students are authorized to use the machines in 105 Cory, so you have the right to evict other students if there are no available machines. If availability of machines becomes a problem, please inform the course instructor.
    • Any alterations (equipment/software) in the lab will be treated as vandalism.
    • Please logoff from the PCs after each session. Unattended logins and accounts may be disabled.
    • You must not share your account/password with others. If you are caught doing this, you will lose your account, which will severely jeopardize your standing in the class.
