Computer Labs

  • Student in PC Lab

    The Office of IT supports multiple labs across campus. If you don't own a computer or you just don't want to carry your own around campus, we've got you covered.

    Using the Labs

    To use lab computers, just sign in with your Capital University username and password. (Be sure to log out when you’re finished, to protect your personal information!) If you have technical problems with a lab computer, contact the IT Help Desk at 614-236-6508 or

    When Can I Use the Lab?

    You are free to use most computer labs when they are available. Keep in mind that some labs are both public and teaching labs, so availability may be limited during the week.

    How Often Do you Check and Maintain Labs?

    A daily lab check is performed twice daily. Labs located in departments such as conservatory, computer science or education are not maintained by IT but by the department directly. Lab checks include filling the printer with paper; removing paper jams; adding toner to the printer; and checking each computer system for functionality. If a printer or computer system is not repairable during a lab check, a service request ticket will be created in our tracking system. A member of our advance technical support team will assess and make the necessary repairs. If you notice a computer system or a printer that needs maintenance, please contact IT at 614-236-6508 or
