Computer Labs

The IT Computer Labs are committed to assisting Hood College students in pursuit of their academic goals by providing state-of-the-art computer hardware and software.  These include Windows and Macintosh systems, laser printers (both color and B/W), DVD drives, a wide variety of up-to-date software, and high-speed connections to the Internet.  Access to these computers is available to all students, faculty, and staff of the College, but there may be specific restrictions or requirements for a particular lab. Use of these labs (and printers) for commercial purposes is prohibited.  You will need a Hood network ID and password to access these computers.
