Lab Student Computer Help Desk & Lab Computers
Located in Wood Hall is a lab for student use. It contains 15 desktops, both Macintosh and Windows. Also located in the lab is a Student Computer Help Desk. Student Lab Assistants are scheduled throughout the day to help students with laptop set up for law school. There are handouts located in the lab and in the hallway outside the lab that explain what services are offered by the Student Computer Help Desk. Before using the computers in the lab for the first time, please see a lab assistant for the login credentials.
Students: much of the information you need can be found on this page or the side bar “For Students” link. Feel free to contact us if you need additional help by using the following options: Stop by the Help Desk located in the Wood Hall Computer Lab or Call the Student Computer Help Hotline: (503) 768-6777 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Printing on the Lab/Student Printers with PCOUNTER
In the interest of sustainability and conservation of resources, students are permitted 1000 free printed pages per calendar year - but if you print double-sided then you get 2000 free pages technically – we set double-sided as the default print setting when we installed the printers on your computer, so you should be good to go. If you exceed your 1,000 free page limit during the year your account will be charged five cents for each additional sheet you print and the overage will be billed to your account in May for graduating students or August for returning students. Also, if you don’t use up your 1,000 free page quota for the year, the leftover balance does not ‘roll over’ to the next year if you’re a returning student.
Printing is controlled by “Pcounter,” a server application that tracks individual student printing use. After a lab assistant helps you install the 3 student printers you are now ready to print at the law school. The printers are located in the Student Computer Lab, the Boley stacks, and the Wood Hall 1st floor student study area.
