Computer Labs

The Warner College of Natural Resources provides computer labs in an effort to facilitate learning through technology. These computer labs are available to any Warner College affiliated student, using their CSU eID information and located within the Michael Smith Natural Resources (MSNR) building. The labs provide access to capable computing systems, with a variety of software students can utilize throughout their studies. Our labs also provide students with resources for printing large posters and maps or papers and reports.

Warner College labs are also used as classrooms for courses that require the technology we provide. Be sure to check the lab schedules for open lab availability and hours. We also understand the requirements of these technologies outside of the classroom. To accommodate those needs, we provide checkout laptops for access to these technologies on the go. Additionally, we provide access to our Remote Computer Lab, accessible from any personal computer, even off-campus.
