Computer Lab Policy
Login is Required
Campus computing patrons must log into all machines in Geneseo's computer labs. Login will provide access to the computer and the printers in the labs. A valid login consists of your Geneseo email username and password.
Do not store files on lab computers
Lab computers automatically delete profiles in order to conserve limited hard drive space and improve performance. It is highly recommended that lab patrons store their files on removable media ( Thumb Drives, External Hard Drives, SD Cards ) or on cloud storage ( Google Drive, Drop Box, One Drive, & iCloud Drive ).
Remember to Logout
When you are finished using a computer in the lab, don't forget to logout. If you do not logout, the next person who uses that computer will have access to all of your personal files - including your email. The next user will also be able to print using your allocation of print balance.
Windows 8.1: Click on the Windows Start Button (squares in the lower left); click on your name, select "sign out"
Macintosh OS X: Click on the Apple menu; select Log Out.
Most computer labs also have at least one printer located nearby. At the beginning of each semester, students will be allocated a specific print balance to print on public laser printers. Their allocation will be reduced per printed page based on personal login in the computing labs. Once the balance falls to $0.00, you will not be allowed to print. Money can be added to your printing balance online via credit card or in the Student Accounts Office (Erwin 103).
