The center has a PC computer lab available to students, which is shared with the Latino Resource Center. The building is equipped with wireless access.

The lab has ten computer stations and four student desks. Students are asked to sign in prior to accessing the computer lab.

Printing

We are equipped with Anywhere Printing. There are also locations near to the Latino Center: Campus Life 110 and Wirtz Hall (outside 332) for color printing; Wirtz Hall (outside 118) and Engineering Building 125 for black and white printing.

Software Available

The following programs are available to students on the workstations:
  • Windows 7 Professional
  • Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010 (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, and Publisher)
  • Adobe Reader, Flash, and Shockwave
  • Microsoft Security Essentials and Defender
  • Java
  • Internet Explorer
  • Google Chrome

Students that are registered in classes that qualify them for the Citrix system will also be able to run SPSS and/or other software applications that Citrix supports. But, SPSS is NOT installed on the computer's hard drive.
