Computers and software

Computer Lab in McLennan

Student Accessibility and Achievement runs a computer lab in the McLennan Library. The room number is M1-21G and it is located on the main floor of the McLennan Library, just behind the elevators and new periodicals on the left hand side (opposite the reserve room). It is open during regular library hours. The workstations in that room are reserved for registered students only and are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

You can find the list of adaptive software available on these workstations on the Student Accessibility & Achievement website. For more information about the computer lab in McLennan please contact a Learning Skills Advisor.
