Graduate Student Computing

The department strives to supply graduate students with computers for use during their program of study when possible. Some faculty provide computers to their students as well.

Departmental Equipment:

The department has a Dell computer, slide scanner, flatbed scanner, and HP color inkjet printer in 505 ASI.

  • The computer and accessories are available for use by departmental personnel for conducting university business.
  • The computer is not on the departmental network; users must save their documents to a disk for transferring to their computers. Documents are not to be stored on the computer.
  • Students may use the HP color laserjet located in 501 ASI at a cost of $.40/page.
  • When picking printing up from the printer, please let one of the staff assistants know how many pages were printed and which budget should be charged.

All graduate students at Penn State are issued Access Accounts at the beginning of their graduate studies. An Access Account is a user ID and password that enables Penn State students personnel to use the full range of Internet services on or off campus, at computer labs or on personal computers.
