Academic Computing Labs

Last updated: June 10, 2013

Use of Academic Computing Facilities

To provide an efficient, pleasant, and productive lab experience, users of the computer lab facilities expect to have:

  • an environment free of disruptive activity.
  • workstations that are working properly and not modified by previous use.
  • surroundings and workstations free from problems caused by food, beverages, and other damaging substances.

There are many policies that cover computing use at Claremont Graduate University. Some are introduced locally to help maintain a decent working environment for all users, others reflect federal, state, and/or local laws.  The Claremont Colleges Policy Regarding Appropriate Use of Campus Computing and Network Resources summarizes these policies. Other policies regarding CGU computing can be found at CGU Administrative Computing Policies. You can find the policy regarding pets here, and the policy regarding guest visitors here. Familiarity with and following these policies helps keep the CGU computing facilities in good working order and available for use by CGU students and staff.
