Fall 2017 Configuration of Computer Labs and Classrooms

Labs and Classrooms for Academic Year 2017-2018

Notes: The information on this page refers to labs managed centrally by Information Services; some schools and departments have their own computer classrooms and labs, which they manage, and instructors should check with their department if they have questions.  This page concerns the following learning spaces only:

  • Kidder 28
  • Kidder 33
  • Milne 130
  • Milne 150
  • Bexell 324
  • Withycombe 205
  • Fairbanks 104
  • Moreland 130B
  • Reed Lodge 111
  • OSU Cascades: open lab and laptop carts

Significant service changes starting fall 2017:

  • Withycombe 205 is now supported and co-managed by Campus Labs
  • Kidder 33 is now a Windows-only classroom
  • Following the completion of the new contract with Adobe, the decision has been made to place Adobe Creative Cloud only in classrooms where required.  During fall term we'll move into compliance with the new license allocation: Adobe CC will be removed from some classrooms, as well as some computers in the Milne computer lab.
  • Kidder 33 and Withycombe 205 have new computers.
  • The Milne computer lab now has 24 new Windows computers, and 12 new iMacs
  • Software versions are still being finalized; we're still receiving feedback from the campus community regarding preferred versions.
  • Our Citrix Apps Server ( has been upgraded for better support and performance.


Below is the list of software to be supported in our labs and classrooms for Academic Year 2017.
