Facilities

The Computer Science Department maintains its own computing facilities for its students and faculty. Electronic door locks control access to these computer rooms in the department. Access is controlled by the college identification card-swipe system. The Computer Science Department has a separate domain (network) called the "CSLAB". All the computers in the CSLAB domain are available for use by everyone with an account on this domain. All CS majors/minors or any student who takes a Computer Science course can request an account (username/password). There is a Linux authentication and file server. The name of this server is "Athena". The student can store their personal files, assignments either on "Athena" or on multiple network attached storage devices.

All the computers have internet access. Wireless internet access is available throughout Poisson Hall which houses the Computer Science Department.
