Student Computer Labs

From webpage:

Student Technology labs follow the NSU academic calendar. The labs do not open on any weekend that precedes or follows a scheduled student break and do not reopen until the official date and time that classes resume.

1000 pages are given at the beginning of each Fall/Spring semester. Please look for the PaperCut Allotment listed under the Lab Restrictions section to find out which labs deduct from your semester printing allotment.

** Pages from print allotment must be sent as print jobs. No blank paper will be directly given out. **
