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.
The Cayton Associated Students Computer Lab, located in Room 209 of the Cayton Associated Students Center, provides computers, laser printers, and a variety of software programs. Computers are available to any Associated Students member. The Associated Students Computer Access Center hours are posted on the Center’s door. For further information, please call (310) 434-4615
The Computer Science and Information Systems Lab, located in Room 231 of the Business building, provides computers, printers, and a selection of business, and programming software for all enrolled SMC students to use during times not reserved for students in specific classes. The Lab serves primarily Computer Science, Computer Applications, and Office Information Systems classes. CSIS Lab hours are posted on the Lab’s door. For further information, please call (310) 434-4783.
