The CoA+A IT department maintains 12 student computer labs across the university, including areas in the Center City Building. The department is constantly working to keep up and support the needs of the end users. For this reason, hardware and software installed within the labs may change per semester. Faculty and students should verify with the department prior to the start of their classes.
The goal of the IT staff is to deploy technology that morphs to meet the needs of the user, making it as transparent and seamless as possible, and ensuring it remains robust enough to support all uses.
