All labs operate on a first-come-first-served basis. No reservations will be made for individual students. iCheckin is now available with your EUID and Password.
Only one student will be allowed per station so that all students may be provided a quiet, non-distracting atmosphere in which to work.
There will be absolutely no loud talking, smoking, chewing tobacco, eating, or drinking in the lab areas.
Students needing to work collaboratively with others must use any of the 16 available team/study rooms available in the BLB.
Cell Phones must be set on silent/vibrate mode or turned off prior to entering the lab areas. The student must step out of the lab to have a phone conversation.
Lab attendants will be happy to assist students needing assistance with “how-to” questions to the best of their knowledge related to all software on the lab stations. During busy lab hours, a lab attendant may not always be immediately available but will assist you as soon as they can.
Lab attendants may not touch the keyboard or mouse.
Students must use either the lab tutor or their instructors for assistance on classroom assignments.
The lab attendants cannot answer questions or solve problems directly related to homework assignments.
Regular Printing Policies
Lab Managers have the authority to restrict printing and/or lab access from any student who abuses printing policies.
Lab Managers have the authority to grant special printing requests.
Printing will be provided ONLY to UNT students as it relates to their course work.
Internet printing counts only as course work if the Lab Manager is made aware of the nature of the course from which the print job has been assigned.
Students are responsible for knowing how many pages an Internet document contains BEFORE the print job is executed.
Students are not allowed to make flyers or signs unless they are directly related to UNT course work. Proof is required.
A student is not allowed to make more than 20 pages of laser print per print job.
Printing should be limited to draft quality for document revisions.
Multiple copies of the same print job are not allowed.
Print jobs are considered the same if most of the original printed page is intact.
Large print jobs (i.e. thesis or dissertation) must be cleared with the Lab Manager and must be limited to one final copy.
Large print jobs should be printed during off-peak hours, evenings, or weekends.
Lab Managers will document printing policy abusers and share that information with other Lab Managers.
Students are encouraged to use double-sided printing. CoB Lab printers are set to print double-sided by default. Please ask a lab attendant for assistance changing the default settings.
Color Printing Policies
Only documents that will be turned in as class assignments should be printed in color; use black and white print option for draft copies.
Lab attendants may visually inspect any color print job which does not appear to meet academic needs. Non-academic print jobs will be recycled for inappropriate use of resources.
Only one copy of a document may be printed on the color printer. Students are encouraged to print a draft copy and carefully proof-read it for accuracy before printing with the color option.
Only PowerPoint presentations with a white background color may be printed on the color printer.
Pages with solid-color backgrounds may not be printed on the color printer.
Web pages may not be printed on the color printer.
