UW-Whitewater Campus Computing Labs

Instructional Technology Services (ITS) operates two General Access Computing Labs for use by students at UW-Whitewater. Located in Andersen 1008 and McGraw 19, the two labs have approximately 325 computers. These machines, running Windows and Macintosh operating systems, offer access to general-purpose as well as discipline-specific software.

Andersen Lab Collaboratories

Beginning Spring semester 2006, a collaboratory with 5 rooms is available in the Andersen General Access Lab for student collaborative work. Technology will be provided to facilitate group projects. All student groups may use these rooms and the associated technologies.

General Description

McGraw Lab and Andersen Lab are general access computing labs for use by all UW-Whitewater students. The lab computers offer access to general-purpose and discipline-specific software running Windows and Macintosh operating systems. Students can also use electronic mail and can access the Internet from any of the lab computers.

UW-Whitewater students use the labs on a first-come, first-served basis. Lab assistants are on duty at all times to assist in the use of the lab equipment and to answer general types of questions. Also, students can use the online help available with most software applications in order to learn about specific features of a program.

All computers in the labs are connected to an ethernet network which provides access to software and laser printing. All lab machines have DVD burners and CD burner drives. It is recommended that students have a Student Storage account or a USB pen drive on which to store personal documents.

Student Web Storage. UWW students wishing to utilize web space for document storage or web publishing may do so via http://stustorage.uww.edu. This 200 MB of online space is designed to store personal files, web accessible media, and materials for designated academic departments. Stustorage accounts are created by self request through https://dfsman.uww.edu/Registration.

Printing in the Computing Labs. Lab computers print to our central print release stations. Students are required to login with their NET-ID username and password to release their print jobs. The printout will print to the printer located in front of the release station.

These labs are maintained by Instructional Technology Services (ITS) within Instructional, Communication and Information Technology (iCIT). ITS also provides basic infrastructure support in the setup of various college funded computer labs on campus.
