UCT Academic Computing group offers open access computer labs, in several locations. These labs provide robust desktop computers for students to work on their academic and research assignments, as well as to become familiar with, and utilize, both standard and specialized software used for their classes. All labs are staffed with both part-time student lab assistants and full-time staff, to support users. Free restricted printing is provided for all currently enrolled students, by presenting their UHCL student ID.
There are several on-campus open computer labs available for student use, including one at the Pearland campus.
