Lab courtesy guidelines

  1. If someone has work to do and you are not using a computer for schoolwork related activities (e.g., you are "surfing the Web" for entertainment) you must allow that person to use the machine.
  2. You are responsible for you own backups. No backups will be made of user files on the file servers.
  3. Log off when you are finished with the computer.
  4. Do not disturb your neighbors. Excessive loud noise, music, horseplay, etc. can result in suspension of lab privileges.
  5. You are responsible for all personal belongings left unsecured in the computer lab. All unattended/abandoned items will be placed in the lost and found in room 615.

In other words, conduct yourselves in a professional manner. These rules have been implemented due to previous failure of the student body to conduct itself professionally.
