Computers Available in Room 100

With the increase in enrollment, the LRTC computers are frequently all in use. If you come in and can't find an open station, check room 100 as we open it up during peak times, usually 10:00 am - 2:00 pm.

Duplex Printing Now Available

With the start of Fall Semester, we have a new printer in the LRTC, set up to print on both sides of the paper. Your print jobs will automatically print on both sides. If you need your print out on only one side, you will have to uncheck the print on both sides box under Properties and then the Finishing tab. See the service desk attendant if you have any questions.
