We provide an open learning lab and study environment for students in all disciplines. Computer labs in the HU and CS buildings offer both Windows and Mac systems and have a wide variety of software.

We offer one-on-one assistance to students who need help with the basic operation of academic computer resources provided to all students, such as Blackboard and the Microsoft Office suite.

When available, we provide one on one assistance to CMAP (Computer Applications) students.

If you wish to receive assistance, you need to be prepared. You must have your textbook, assignment, any necessary files, storage device, notebook(s), required password(s), and writing instruments. Please note, if you do not know your passwords the staff of the Digital Learning Center cannot help you.
