PUBLIC COMPUTING AREAS
In Binghamton University's Public Computing Labs powered by ITS, you will find a variety of computing software and hardware, go to the Computing Lab Directory to see what hardware is available, and then click on the LiveMap link to see the latest software, and what stations are available. Click on the BeThere link to see schedule. See "Labs Schedule" below for links.
Social Distancing of the ITS Public Computing Labs and Library Information Commons over the Summer of 2020 has greatly reduced the number of physically available computers accessible to our students, as well as the available hours. To help find available computers in our open areas you can also use LabFind a new mobile app that is part of our LiveMaps Real-Time Computer Availability software.
The main public computing areas are the Information Commons, Academic A Computing Lab areas and Science Library. There are also a number of smaller public computing areas on campus. The main public computing sites and additional satellite areas offer a wide selection of locations in which to work.
All computers in the Computing Labs require your Binghamton University userID and password to log in. Once you've logged in, you will be able to connect to your Bmail, Google Apps and network storage accounts.
You can print directly to laser printers from BINGSUNS, PCs and Macintoshes in public computing areas using Papercut. You can also print from your own computer if you configure it properly. Learn more about printing at Binghamton University.
