Lab & Classroom Services
IT@Sam has twelve computer labs across the SHSU main campus. Three of these are general use labs for students to use at the scheduled open times: AB4 203, CHSS 130, and the left side of NGL 200. The other nine labs are used for classroom instruction and are open to students whenever a class is not scheduled. Schedules for the instructional labs are posted daily at each lab.
IT@Sam also has five labs at The Woodlands Center (TWC) located in The Woodlands, TX. One lab is a general use lab for students to use at the scheduled open times, TWC 315. The other four are instructional labs, and can be found on the second floor.
All Information Technology labs are equipped with Windows 7 workstations*, DVD-RW drives, scanners, printers, USB ports for access with compatible flash/USB drives, and other peripheral items. The labs are available to enrolled students, faculty, and staff. Lab schedules, reservations scheduled, and reservations requests are available online.

IT@Sam is in charge of the hours of operation, maintenance of the labs and equipment, lab reservations, and lab assistant scheduling. If you should have any questions regarding the computer labs or any special requirements for the labs, please contact our Lab Managers.
Faculty may submit problems with the lab's conditions such as lighting, temperature, speed of connection, etc. to the lab managers. For equipment maintenance, submit these problems on the SHSU SamWeb Work order system.
