Computer Labs Policy


These polices have been established to help provide a quality educational environment and to promote student learning and success. Students who do not abide by these policies may be denied access and/or use of the computer labs.

Computer Lab Assistants

  • Are an official BU staff, therefore users must respect and obey their instructions.
  • Primary duties are to keep the lab facilities running as smoothly as possible and to report any extraordinary/unsolvable problems.
  • Are available to assist students having problems or questions regarding the computer facilities to the best of their ability.
  • Are not employed to tutor individual students on how to use the facilities.
  • Will provide students with a limited degree of assistant in computer software.
  • Make sure that ONLY officially registered students are in Computer labs (Füglister, S-306 and D-113).
  • Students who choose to use the facilities are expected to be, for the most part, self sufficient in their computer usage. The support and assistance for special programs are the responsibility of the professor which utilizes them for his/her class.

  • Computer Labs (Füglister, S-306 and D-113) are not the right place for chatting, bringing colleague in, friends and relatives etc. Our beautiful campus is the right place for such an activity.
  • It is not allowed for another person to use your account and password.
  • Students who need to do University work have priority over student doing personal work including playing games or surfing the net. Therefore, the lab Assistant has the right to ask any user to free the PC for others.
  • Computers left unattended for a period of 10 minutes or more will be cleared and made available to other students.
  • Students are responsible for their personal items while in the computer labs.
  • Installing, removing of software,  reconfiguring computer settings on any computer in the lab is not allowed unless directed by faculty or lab staff employed.
  • Headset must be worn when listening to music or media within the labs (where available - i.e. Digital Media Center )
  • All noise levels (include: Mobiles, talking, music, muffled headphone noise, etc) in the labs are not permitted so that others are not disturbed. The computer labs (Füglister - S-306 - D113) are to be used as a study environment.
  • Users should show respect for other users.
  • Treat the computers with respect. If you get mad at something that is not working, don't bang on the keyboard. (there are trees outside for that kind of activity).
  • Please be considerate. If there are classes coming in (and there usually are), then either take a break, or move to a back machine that is unoccupied.
