Campus Computer Lab Information

This is not an exhaustive list.  While we make efforts to keep this information as up to date as possible CalArts IT does not manage all on-campus computer labs, so if you know of an omission or mistake please let us know!

Library Computer Labs

CalArts IT manages two labs in the Library: one near the IT office (referred to as simply the computer lab) and the other along the back wall, called The Stacks.  

These labs are for general use and are publicly available, with installed programs that are generally useful throughout each of the disciplines on campus.  While the labs are as similar as possible there are a couple of key software and hardware differences.

The Computer Lab

The computer lab is a multipurpose room, often reserved as a classroom for instruction between all disciplines and the Library faculty.  They print, by default, to the color laser printers near Circulation Desk.  

There are 19 student stations and an instructors station with a projector and speakers for demonstration.  Each workstation is a Dell 9020 All-In-One with a Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, and a 23" display.  Software common to all Computer Lab workstations are:

  • Adobe Creative Cloud
  • Office 2016
  • Sibelius (music notation software)
  • Firefox / Chrome

The Stacks

Primarily along the back wall of the Library are the workstations in the Stacks.  These are publicly available workstations that are on a first-come-first-serve basis.  They print, by default, to the same color laser printers near the Circulation Desk.  

There are a total of 11 workstations, with a few on the wall adjacent to the Writing Center.  They are Dell 9010's with a Core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM, and a 23" display.  Software common to all the machines are:

  • Adobe Creative Cloud
  • Office 2016
  • Sibelius (music notation software)
  • Final Draft 8
  • Firefox / Chrome

Film/Video Computer Labs

The Film/Video IT department manages the labs for the school of Film/Video.  Accounts for those computers are only managed by them and CalArts IT is unable to help with any problems regarding these labs.  If you're having any trouble with FVCentral, or logging in to those computers, please contact fvtechsupport@calarts.edu.
