Computer Labs

Lab Information

Williams has computer labs in several buildings on campus. During the term, these are typically available whenever the building is open.  Most computers require a Williams College username and password to use.  Certain specialty labs are limited to students enrolled in particular courses.

— COVID Precautions —

You should limit your use of shared-use lab computers to only those applications you’re unable to run on your own computer. See: Software available in Labs

Shared-use computers can’t be effectively disinfected. If you need to use a shared-use computer it is strongly recommended that you wear a mask, don’t touch your face while using it, and wash your hands thoroughly immediately after use.
