By Dr. Elizabeth Hinkle-Turner, Student Computing Services Manager
Several of the General Access Labs have lengthened their hours to 2:00 A.M. This has been done in an effort to provide better computing service to students throughout the campus and to mitigate the long lines that suddenly appear at the Willis 24-hour lab at midnight. Not all of the General Access Labs can expand their nighttime hours; this expansion requires a location in a building where doors can be easily and safely left unlocked after midnight. Additionally, the University Police Department has stepped up its early morning patrols of these open areas to provide greater safety to students wishing to work very late in the labs.
The following labs now have expanded hours:
The Graduate Lab (ISB 205C):
The PACS/SMHM Lab (Chilton 255):
College of Arts and Sciences (the lab in GAB 330 ONLY - all other CAS labs have unchanged hours)
The managers of these facilities are hopeful that students will take advantage of these later hours and plan to evaluate their decisions based on late-night usage statistics at the end of the semester.
