Department Computer Labs & Policies
Our department has two dedicated computer laboratories in FB148
and FB152. To insure that computer science students have needed
laboratory access, please follow the following rules and
Computer Science Lab (FB148) Rules and Guidelines
- This lab is for computer science students only. This includes
students who are majoring or minoring in computer science and
software engineering or who are currently enrolled in any CS/SE
- All computer science students may get the security code for the
lab door from Amy (aaldridg, FB144). The code
for the lab will be changed each year.
- You may eat and drink in the lab so long as you clean up after
- You may use the fridge and microwave. We strongly suggest that

- The ACM Student Chapter has bottles of soda in the fridge for
sale for $1. Please do not take a soda without paying.
- When you use the lab in the evenings or on weekends,
keep the door shut. Otherwise, non-CS students
will wander in and use the machines. (Get in the habit of doing
this early in the semester so that non-CS students won't flood the
lab late in the semester.)
- If you are the last one to leave, please shut the door and turn
out all the lights. If you leave late at night, don't hesitate to
call Butler Police (9396) for an escort.
- During the day, the lab is often used for teaching classes. You
can use the lab during class if the instructor gives permission to
do so. If you do use the lab during a class, please use common
courtesy (don't make noise, don't get up and wander around,

tutor is on duty, he/she is in charge of the lab.

- This lab is controlled by Dr. Linos. He has final say over who
may or may not use the lab, and who is allowed to know the security
code for the lab.
- Students who are currently working on software engineering
projects and certain EPICS projects may use the lab.
- When using the 152 lab in the evenings, remember to keep the
door shut for your own safety.
