Student Computer Use
WCC is a Windows/Office-based PC environment providing open access for student use. The College’s library provides computers for research purposes and the student access lab provides students with the full complement of Office, internet, web-based email, and specific curriculum based software (check with your instructor). Open hours for both venues are posted throughout campus and can also be found on the College’s website.
All computer access requires students to use a personalized network account. This is required for computer access in all labs, classrooms, etc. With the network accounts, students will have:
- Personalized username and password
- “My Documents” network storage 5 GB and Web Storage 25GB
- Wireless access
- Whatcom email address
- Web-based Microsoft Office
- Remote access to campus desktops and applications
The College also supports several computer classrooms used in computer aided instruction (CAI). Access to these computers will be limited to those students enrolled in CAI classes for the quarter. Instructors will inform students that are scheduled in a computer based lab. Visit whatcom.edu under student services, computer access & tech help for more detailed information.
