Entrance to the TLCs

You must be a resident, conference guest, or employee of University Housing to use a Technology Learning Center.

Noise Level

The Technology Learning Centers are quiet study areas, so please keep noise to a minimum. Silence your cell phone, and take all phone calls outside.

Food and Drink

Food and Beverages are allowed in the TLC centers. However, please be careful with the location of your food in relation to the computer equipment, and throw away all garbage in the proper receptacles.

Temporary Storage

Temporary file storage is available on the network Public Storage (Windows 7 only), which can be accessed by all TLC computers. The public storage drive and computer desktops are cleared weekly. Recommended storage should be to "external drives" such as USB thumb-drives.


Printers may be accessed by any computer in the lab. All printing must be paid for with your Wiscard. All printing charges are handled through the campus Pay for Print Management System (GoPrint). Use your Wiscard Campus Cash or Housing account to pay for printing.

Black and white copies are $0.07 a page, and color copies are $0.60 a page.

If you ever need to request a refund on printing due to a problem, submit a printing refund request with DoIT.

Computers are available on a first-come-first-served basis, with priority to those using the machines for academic purposes.

Public display of materials demeaning to persons of a particular gender, race, creed, ethnicity, disability or sexual orientation is harassment subject to disciplinary action by the Dean of Students Office and expulsion from the TLC. Pornography is also strictly prohibited.
