Labs and Classrooms Overview

  • Students, faculty and staff can log in to campus workstations using their Purdue Career Account. A custom profile is built for each user when logging into a Windows-based computer in a campus lab or classroom.
  • To keep your data secure and protect the computers against viruses, workstations are set to wipe all user and profile data off a computer each time you log off. Be sure to remove any data that you would like to save PRIOR to logging off any lab or classroom computer.
  • Software applications available range from web and media development to math and statistical applications. Many specialized classroom applications are also available.
  • Computer Labs & Classrooms at PNW are primarily a Windows environment.  Apple computers are available in select locations on both campuses.
