Work on your assignments from home or anywhere using the following resources!
- CSE Distributable Linux Virtual MachinesThe CSE lab prepares virtual machine images that, in a rough sense, allow you to take a lab Linux workstation home with you -- you simply boot the virtual machine as an application on your personal system.
- CSE Windows Virtual Lab - There are 15 concurrent "seats" available to connect to remotely via Remote Desktop Client. Each machine has a near identical software config to that of the Windows Instructional Lab Workstations in the Allen Center.

The Department provides a variety of computing resources for use by CSE undergraduates, including three general-purpose labs, several special-purpose labs, a cluster of Unix cycle servers and a Windows Virtual Lab that is accessible from nearly anywhere.
The general purpose labs are located in CSE 002, 006 & 022, and contain nearly 75 PCs between them, running a mix of Fedora Core 15 Linux and Window 7 OS. There are also 30+ laptop/portable device stations equipped with tabletop power and ethernet jacks available in these rooms for students wishing to plug in and/or connect up their personal devices. The special purpose labs provide specialized environments for specific capstone courses and disciplines (animation, graphics and hardware courses). More specific information about the computing labs can be found here.
Lab Usage Guidelines, Personal Responsibility & Security
- Unlike most public labs on campus, there is nobody assigned to sit in our instructional labs to monitor usage or behavior. Instead, we rely on the fact that the lab is for CSE students only, and that we're all adults. We count on YOU to maintain decorum and pick up after yourself. Please take a few minutes to review these guidelines for usagein CSE Instructional Labs.
- Don't let anyone into a lab that you don't either (a) recognize or has (b) a working cardkey. Report any suspicious persons or activities to the CSE reception desk immediately.
- Don't leave anything behind and expect it to be there after class, or the next morning, or whenever. If they don't walk away found items are given to the CSE receptionist. Check with the reception desk and possibly the CSE Helpdesk (CSE260) if you've lost anything recently.
If you need assistance using these labs or have any question or issue regarding the CSE computing environment, try the following (roughly in the order listed, depending on the nature of your question)...
- Consult the CSE Support Web or FAQ.
- Problems with your assignments? You should first ask your TA, instructor or other students in the class.
- Submit a Support request.
- Stop by the Support Office in person, CSE 260.
- Look at the links in the left hand column of this page, to see if anything there might lead you towards an answer.
- In addition, the Course Computing database show which labs and what software each course is using for the current quarter, as well as information about access to labs, and other related information.

- CS Lab Director - Aaron Timss, timss@cs, Office CSE252 -- The CS Lab is the umbrella organizationof the Support group.
- Student ACM Chapter - the ACM officers meet with the Lab Director and the faculty ACM Liaison on a regular basis. And you can talk with any of the ACM officers about an issue that you would like to have raised with the CS Lab, or about anything in the department. You can also provide anonymous comments or feedback to the ACM, which they can take to the appropriate party in the department. Contact information for the ACM (including anonymous), can be found on the ACM Feedback page. Individual ACM Officers can be contacted here.
- CSE Undergrad Advisors - especially for something that is not related to computing facilities. They can help you get computing-related issues addressed to the appropriate person, as well. Contact information for the advisors can be found here.
