Santa Monica College operates a number of computer labs for students. All Associated Student members currently enrolled at SMC may use the computers at the Cayton Associated Students Computer Lab. Other labs are available only to students enrolled in specific SMC classes. However, during certain, variable, non-reserved hours, some of these normally restricted labs will be opened to the general student population. Some labs that follow this practice are the Computer Science and Information Systems (CSIS) Lab (room B231 in the Business building) and the Library Lab, as well as the Science Lab in Science 240. Each semester you may call/visit these labs to obtain the most up-to-date information on availability times.

Students are expected to abide by SMC’s Responsible Computer Use Policy and to use the campus computers for college-related work only. All files MUST be saved onto removable media, such as flash drives, provided by the student. Files not saved to removable media are subject to loss. The computer labs and their staff are NOT responsible for any work lost on these computers.
