The Department of Computer Science maintains a comprehensive laboratory environment to support teaching and learning.  Our labs are equipped with current technologies and provide a flexible computing environment intended to give students the opportunity to learn and experiment with a wide variety of hardware and software tools commonly used in industry.  The labs also serve to foster community among Computer Science students as a central space to gather and collaborate on course work and projects.

Requesting Access

Computer Science (CS) majors who are currently enrolled in CS 1302 or higher-level CS courses may request access to the Advance Computing Lab for CS majors (TLC 1117). Upon approval by the Department, students are granted 24/7 access to the lab and the TLC building when classes are in session.  To request access, please visit the CS department office.  Please make sure to bring your UWG ID card with you - access will not be granted if you do not have your UWG ID.

The CoLab (TLC 2101) and CoDELab (TLC 2138) are available 24/7 when classes are in session, for exclusive use by upper-level CS majors taking 3000/4000-level CS courses, subject to availability.  Please see the following section regarding guidelines for use of these spaces.

Guidelines for Use of CoLabs

  • Upper-level CS majors (enrolled in CS 3/4000 classes) who are granted CS lab access will be able to use these rooms 24/7 when classes are in session, subject to availability.
  • Faculty and student groups wishing to reserve time in one of these rooms should use the room's Google calendar. Simply create an event on your UWG calendar and add the appropriate room to the event:
  • Priority for use of the rooms is as follows:
    • Faculty and/or departmental activities shall have first priority, regardless of whether a reservation was previously made on the calendar. This may include class project demonstrations, code reviews, faculty-student meetings, departmental events, student activities organized or co-sponsored by the department, etc.
    • Second priority will be for student academic use and/or CS related student groups (including ACM and ACM-W) when reserved on the room's Google calendar.
    • Third priority will be for individual and/or group use that has not been previously scheduled.
  • The department may restrict card access to the rooms during scheduled events and/or for maintenance purposes. Whenever possible, closures for maintenance will be noted on each room’s Google calendar.

Any questions regarding the labs, usage, and/or reservations should be directed to Alex Young and/or Edwin Rudolph.
