Open Access Labs

There are five Open Access Labs (OALs) on campus for academic use. Students in all disciplines may drop in to use these labs during open hours, provided they have a One Card ID and an active MyCalStateLA ID account. The computer labs are equipped with computers (PCs and Macs), printers, copiers, document cameras, shredders, and mobile device charging stations. They also offer a wide variety of software, high-speed internet connections, and study rooms.
