Computer Labs

Information Technology Services currently supports five state-of-the-art technology and collaboration facilities on three Prairie View A&M university campuses. The Student Computer Center Labs are designed to support the academic and research goals of the entire campus community.

Students are invited to conduct research or review online material in one of five computer labs that together hold almost 500 high-speed computers. These labs represent the largest student computer resource on campus. Access the digital library, write a paper, check e-mail, or just surf the Web. Several work and study spaces designed for comfort, flexibility, and easy collaboration are also available. Work alone or with your study group.

Printing done on PVAMU’s networked Student Computing Center (SCC) Lab printers is tracked and logged electronically. If a student uses up his or her 800 free Printing Units before the end of the semester, they cannot print until additional Printing Units are purchased. See Printing Quota FAQ’s for more information
