Computer Lab Policies and Procedures
From Appalachian State University Policy Manual
1.1 There are now close to 2,500 public workstations across campus. The largest student computing facility is in Belk Library Information Commons, which now has over 400 public workstations. Almost every academic department has computing facilities available.
2.1 We hope you find your use of the ASU computer labs easy and helpful. If you have any concerns or questions about the following policies, please call (828) 262-6266. The computer labs are available for Appalachian State University students to complete class assignments. All students are asked to respect the rights of others in order to have a quiet environment to complete their assignments. The Technology Support Services staff reserves the right to ask a student to leave a computer lab when he or she does not comply with these rules. Students violating the Computer Lab Rules will be referred to the Technology Support Services Lab Supervisor.
