TLC in Dejope Residence Hall

Technology Learning Centers

Due to COVID-19, the use of our Technology Learning Center (TLC) facilities in fall 2020 will be limited to printing or appropriately physically distant studying. To help keep residents safe, limit touchpoints, and reduce the spread of germs, all workstations except printing stations have been removed, and equipment checkout is not being offered. Thank you for your understanding.

Technology Learning Centers (TLCs) are nine computer labs and four mini-labs conveniently placed in various residence halls on campus. TLCs offer computer workstations, printing, and equipment checkout for residents.

  • Note: Workstations and equipment checkout are not available during fall 2020 due to COVID-19.

Take advantage of 24/7 access to our technology-rich study spaces that are great places to work on group projects or to use specialty resources for individual work. UWNet wireless connections are available in the TLCs and other public areas.

If this is your first time in the center, please look over our lab policies below.
