Our Policies

All guests must follow guidelines while visiting the MLC. Learn about our policies below.

Can I eat and/or drink in the MLC?

With the exception of capped water bottles, food and drink are not allowed in the labs.

Is the MLC a silent study space?

We ask that you keep noise to a minimum while in the MLC. If you are listening to audio, you must use headphones and they must be kept at a volume that is not audible to other users.

We also request that students refrain from speaking on mobile phones in our computer lab. However, you can text (with notifications on silent), check voicemails, browse the web, etc. on your phone. Use of audio content must be used with headphones. Please respect others’ use of the lab for work and study.

Can I log onto MLC computers with another student's account?

No. Students are prohibited from misrepresenting themselves as another user.

Can I add programs to an MLC computer?

No. Do not attempt to install software on any lab computer. Guests shall not use any software obtained illegally, or not properly licensed for our systems. Tampering with computer hardware or cabling is also prohibited. If you detect hardware problems, report it to a Lab Monitor, Lab Coordinator, or by e-mail to:
