Computer Lab Open for Business

We were pleased this week to reopen our School of Business computer lab this week to our students after several upgrades to the computers and other equipment. In addition to the work this summer improving wireless access in our building, these upgrades reflect our commitment to providing our students with up-to-date tools and technology during their experience here at La Sierra University.

We have also added ID card access to the lab for students, eliminating the need for a staff member or student worker to be present to allow them in. Special thanks to Eduardo Brugman, eLearning & Technology Coordinator in the School of Business (and soon-to-be father), his staff, and our campus Information Technology Department for their work on all of this over the summer.

Due to these improvements and changes, please observe the following guidelines and requirements when using our computer lab.  
  • No food or drinks are allowed at anytime in the Lab as you will be held liable for any damage caused to the equipment.
  • Check the Alarm Panel on the right before swiping your card. If the light is red don't open the door for the alarm will sound. 
  • Please find Cheryl or Vernell before continuing to enter.
  • Tap your ID on the sensor to the right of the Door to enter the lab. Pull the door open quickly and close the door behind you. 
  • If your card does not open the door please take your card down to Student Life and ask for Fain and he will help reactivate your card.
  • Do not let anyone else in with you as you will be held liable for any damage or missing equipment that they may cause.
  • If you are unable to login to the computer(s) please go to MICOL in AMBS HALL for login troubleshooting. We CANNOT solve this problem in the School of Business.
  • If the printer is jammed or out of paper, please see Cheryl or Vernell. DO NOT attempt to fix the problem yourself. 
  • The lab will be available to you from Sunday thru Friday, there are no posted times, BUT please check to see if there is a class meeting in the lab before entering. 
  • When security comes to lock the building down after 9PM, you will be requested to leave.
  • Please save your work immediately and do not attempt to reenter the lab after the alarm has been set. 
  • If you have any questions, comments, or concerns please come see Cheryl and she will direct you to the appropriate person.


  1. "When security comes to lock the building down after 9PM, you will be requested to leave."
    9PM??? Really?

  2. It will actually be at about 9:50 when our classes end for the night. This is also the same closing time as the MICOL computer lab which other students on-campus use. As we are continuing to make improvements to our building security, we certainly hope to extend these hours soon.
