The in-person Multi-Use Computer Lab is currently now open 6 days a week during the Spring Semester. Hours are posted to the right.

Open Entry/MultiUse Computer Lab

The MultiUse computer lab is a fee-based lab. To access the lab, students must be currently enrolled in a class at Mesa Community College.

You do NOT need to make an appointment to use the lab, students can walk in any time during the hours we are open and use a computer. The lab is open to ALL students of MCC, as long as they have a student ID.

Our lab assistants will be available to assist students in-person or online. We will be available to help students navigate through canvas, start their assignments, connect with tutoring and/or their instructor, answer general questions, as well as provide basic support with Microsoft products.

Currently students will need to bring their own headset if they wish to use audio for the computer, we are not providing headsets for students at this time. We do have a limited selection of books students can borrow.
