Mahar 210 is a computer lab with approximately 25 PCs and Mahar 211 is a lab with approximately 25 Macs. During the class year, these labs have been used during the day for classes and then open for general access from 6pm-10pm Monday through Thursday. They will continue to be used for classes during the day and, new this fall semester, they will also be used for classes in the evening. This change was made based on the need for additional labs for classes being taught later in the day as well as low usage of both labs during the general access time period. The change will be effective Monday, August 29.

The Penfield Library computer lab in room 100A will be under renovation starting May 31 and finishing by June 14. During this time, the lab will be closed. Penfield 24 hour room and Penfield Lobby computers will be available for use. Laptops can also be signed out from the Circulation desk.
This is a photo of the current configuration of the computer lab:
The renovations will replace the center tables with new rectangular ones that will have more surface space to work on projects and assignments. The design change is attributed to feedback CTS received through a Library student focus group that evaluated various Library services, including the use of the lab.
Additional renovations include new carpet, a fresh coat of paint, and new chairs for the center tables. At a later time, the tables and chairs that line the perimeter of the lab will also be replaced.
We hope the renovations will create a more visually appealing and functional place to work.
The general access lab in Marano Campus Center (MCC) room 207 will be closed Wednesday, April 13 from 8am-5pm while new computers are installed. During this time, the computer lab in MCC room 206 (across the hall from 207) will be available for general access use. Penfield Library will also be available. All thirty-one Dell Optiplex 990 PCs in room 207 will be replaced with brand new Dell Optiplex 7020 computers. They will have faster processors and additional memory to help create a better user experience. New keyboards and mice will also be installed.
