Labs on Campus

For a list of all labs and classrooms, visit our Room Update page here.  

You can find all the current Computer Usage Overview in each lab - this is only available from GCU computers.

IT Support in labs/classrooms

IT problems in labs/classrooms can be reported to the IT Helpdesk by using the dedicated help phone. Each IT computer lab has a wall-mounted phone that connects you directly to the IT Helpdesk.  Calls from labs/classrooms that require a member of Information Services Support staff to attend will be carried out within 20 minutes from logging your call.  

Classrooms and lecture rooms do not have wall-mounted phones.  If you require support in a classroom or lecture room, you can use the IT Help handset in the nearest lab available.

Some labs and classrooms are owned and supported by School technicians; these labs and classrooms will have signage directing you to the appropriate support points.
