Computer Labs

computer lab icon

Technology Services maintains a number of computer labs across campus, sometimes referred to as Instructional Computing Services (ICS) Labs. General use computer labs provide reliable computer and printing access to students, faculty, and staff. Classroom labs also provide instructors with current software, on-site help, audiovisual equipment, and collaboration stations. 

Instructors can reserve a computer lab for class.  

English and Illini Union labs are publicly open to students and staff. The other labs are available only when there are no scheduled classes.

If a lab is not opened and should be, please call 217-244-6637 or 217-244-2662.

Please note: ICS computer lab hours will be reduced during student breaks and on university holidays.

If you need remote access to computer lab desktops or software applications, try UIUC AnyWare.

Reserve a Computer Lab

Some of our computer labs have classrooms that can be reserved for use by an academic class or training conferences. Classrooms can be reserved for individual dates or for the same time for multiple weeks in a semester. Due to high demand for semester long classes, we begin processing reservations for classrooms approximately 3 months in advance. We cannot accept reservations submitted less than 1 week in advance. It is very important to submit semester-long reservations as far in advance as possible.
 

Make a Reservation

Reserve a computer lab for classroom use. Due to the high volume of reservation requests we receive every semester, it is not feasible for us to process requests over the phone or via e-mail. When you have decided which lab you wish to use, click on the “Request Courses and Sections” link in the main menu of the Reservation System. You can then request a lab for a particular semester, or on a day-by-day basis. When you have completed your request you will receive a confirmation email from us when the lab has been officially reserved. If there are any problems we will contact you for more information.Lab classrooms can be reserved for up to 2 hours per section request. If you require a lab for a longer period (a 6 hour conference, for example), you must make multiple sections. There is no limit to the number of sections a class can have, but the section names must be different.
 

Costs

  • Academic courses and exams can reserve lab classrooms for free provided the lab is open, otherwise a $15/hour staffing fee will be charged.
  • Lab classrooms can be be reserved for training purposes for $25/hour if the training is a non-commercial course for students or staff.
  • Academic or University-affiliated conferences can reserve lab classrooms for $50/hour.
