​Online Access for UWSP Computer Labs

Information Technology is using a new technology to let students log into our computer labs without having to visit our campuses. All you need is a computer connected to the internet.

The table below lists computer labs that were configured for this service. It also explains which computers are open to all students and which computers are restricted to accommodate specialty courses.
