Computer Science Labs

All of the Computer Science facilities at Carleton reside in the Center for Mathematics and Computing (CMC). Lab Assistants are available in some of the labs to help students with their computing questions. Students interested in getting an account on the department computers should talk to Mike Tie in CMC 305.

We currently have four labs that are configured for CS. All of the labs dual boot Windows and Mac OS X, and access to Linux is available via a server and the use of x2go software. Here is some additional information for each lab:

  • CMC 102 regularly has lab assistants in the evening to help students working on assignments. CMC 102 is both a general lab as well as a classroom, so it is often booked for classes during the day.
  • CMC 304 is a general lab for students to work in. It notably also has a functional PDP8/e on long-term loan from St. Olaf College, which is used for our Organization & Architecture class. 
  • CMC 306 is a general lab for students to work in, and regularly has lab assistants in the evening to help students working on assignments.
  • CMC 307 is the CS Comps Room. The computers in this lab are used during the fall and winter terms by students working on their Senior Comps projects.  The room is a general purpose lab in the spring.

These labs are open 24 hours a day.

Each of Computer Science labs can be reserved for classes and special projects. To reserve a lab, contact Mike Tie.
