Lab Policies and Guidelines

  • An MCC student I.D. card must be presented to log in and out of the lab.  The MultiUse Lab is available to all students currently enrolled in a computer-based class and who have a current MCC I.D. card. 
  • The lab is a place for students to work on their school assignments.  Lab assistants are students just like our guests, and cannot be guaranteed to always have the answers to every question. While the lab attempts to be as helpful as possible, there are no guarantees for help in every situation.
  • Computer lab assistants will provide assistance in the operation of the various software packages installed on the lab computers such as Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, Access, PowerPoint and Windows), Canvas, SNAP, printing and scanning, however, they will not do homework or assignments for students, nor can they spend so much time assisting individual users that they neglect the lab desk and other students. 

If the lab personnel are not familiar with certain software applications or assignments, we will do our best to help.  Lab personnel are not tutors, if you need extensive help with assignments, please rely on your instructor as your resource.  Lab instructors are also available during scheduled times.  Please check the instructor schedule in the lab for more information. Students can also contact the Learning Enhancement Center (461-7678); they offer free tutoring in most academic subjects.

  • Assistance with quizzes and exams is not allowed.
  • To avoid liability issues and distractions to the other users, non-registered students or guests of any kind are not permitted in the MultiUse Computer Lab. (This does include children and spouses.)
  • No food or beverages of any kind (except for bottled water with a secure cap) are allowed inside the building.
  • Cell phones must be set to quiet mode while inside the building. The ringing of phones and telephone conversations are disturbing and distracting to others.
  •  Conserve paper and toner and use the print preview option whenever possible.
  • Lab hours may change during holiday weeks.  Please check the information boards inside/outside of the lab for changes in lab hours.
  • Please do not leave your personal belongings unattended. We are not responsible for lost, stolen or moved items. It is your responsibility to keep your own property safe and secure. When you leave the lab, please take your belongings with you.
  • Items left behind in the lab are stored for a short period of time at the check-in desk in a lost and found area and then turned in to Public Safety.
  • Only use software that is provided by the MultiUse Lab.  Never install software on any of the computers in the lab.
  • Lab personnel cannot perform any maintenance or upgrades on student owned devices.  Please use the Help Center for assistance.
  • The viewing of pornographic or other sexually explicit materials in the lab is not permitted.
  • The user is responsible for observing all copyright and licensing laws.
  • Please refrain from loud talking in the lab and keep noise levels to a minimum.  This is an instructional lab, students may be taking exams.
  • Please be respectful of others and do not put your feet on the desks or chairs.
  • Shoes and shirts must be worn at all times while in the MultiUse Computer Lab and classrooms. 
  • Effective July 1, 2012, no tobacco product - including smokeless tobacco products and e-cigarettes can be used on any Maricopa Community College property. This includes buildings, walkways, and parking lots. The borders extend to the edges of the campuses and other District-leased or owned properties. The new policy will not extend to perimeter sidewalks (those located beside public thoroughfares). There will no longer be areas on campus designated for smoking or available ashtrays. Students and employees who violate the tobacco-free policy may be subject to consequences, as with any other student or employee policy violation.
  • Lab personnel are authorized to request all students to abide by these policies.
  • Users of the computer lab are expected to abide by all rules and regulations of the college and the computer facilities.
  • Any student not displaying common courtesy or good common sense in the use of the laboratory facilities will be requested by a lab assistant or staff member to leave the facility.
  • Public Safety personnel will be called for assistance in the event of further non-compliance.
