*The College of Architecture computer lab monitors and staff will provide
assistance with the usage
of installed programs to the best of our abilities, but
there are not tutors on staff. Specific assistance to the use of installed
programs and programs taught through the digital courses should be directed
towards the instructors whose class the students

are enrolled in.




















Policies and Etiquette

Policies and Etiquette w
ill be posted
in the computer labs
as well.

General Policy Statement

The UTSA
College of Architecture
Student Computing Labs are available to all
UTSA College of
Architect
ure, Interior Design, Urban and Regional Planning and Construction Science and Management
students

o
n a first
-
come, first
-
served basis. Students must be able to provide proof of current UTSA
enrollment (see any UTSA Bulletin/Catalog for mandatory ID inform
ation), and may be asked to show
their
UTSA
Card
. To ensure that all students have equal access to the eq
uipment, any PC

that is left
unattended for 10 minutes will be reset. Any books, notebooks, or other materials will be collected and
placed in the Lost
and Found
, which is located in the IT office adjacent to the computer labs (MNT
1.103B.1) and/or at the security desk near the front entrance to the Monterey building
.
No student data
should be saved on any UTSA computers. The College of Architecture will

provide temporary storage for
your convenience that is automatically created when a student logs into one of the computer labs in the
Monterey building. To access the student

folder created on the temporary server, double click the icon on
the computer d
esktop labeled “Student Drive”.

Users may occupy only one computer or terminal at a
time. Please be considerate of others and return the machine to the Main
log
-
in screen.

Do not make any
changes to configurations, such as screen colors, sizes, or positio
ns.
The installation of any software
application by student users is prohibited
.

To protect the hardware and minimize future costs, NO food or drinks are allowed in the computer labs.
Be courteous to others working in the facility and try not to disturb th
em by working loudly when in groups.
Keep personal stereos with headphones turned down low. Anyone who is violating facility policies or
disturbing other users may be asked to leave the lab, and escorted by campus police if necessary.

Etiquette & Policies

1.

Identification is required to ensure only authorized use of your facility.

2.

Cellular phones should be turned down as low as possible. Use them only in the designated
phone area or outside of the lab.

3.

When seeking assistance from
the IT

Staff

or lab monito
rs
, treat them with the same dignity and
respect you wish to be treated. They will in turn give you service with a smile. They are here to
assist you, and will do so to the best of their ability.

4.

Someone else will use the system after you; please leave the

PC and workspace the way you
would like to find it. Customizing the computer system and desktop is not authorized.

5.

When completing your work please close the program(s) you are using.

6.

If you encounter a problem with the computer, report it to the Help De
sk immediately!

7.

Please return the chair under the table when you leave, and do remember your personal items
when leaving your work area.

8.

Observe the food/drink prohibition policy. Food bits damage the computers, especially monitors,
keyboards, and mice. Sp
illed liquids can destroy electronic equipment while posing an increased
hazard from electrical shock. Please no food or drinks!

9.

Do not touch the monitor. Touching the monitor screen leaves behind oil from the hands. This oil
impairs other users from effec
tively using the system and can cause potential damage to the
monitor.




Open an IT Support Ticket

)

*The
current online work ticket system is for faculty and staff only, and as of now, does not work
with the Mac OS.

Greetings!


We look forward to assisting you with technical issues in a timely manner. Your feedback is important to
us so feel free to drop us s
uggestions for improvement as we look to refine this system to suit your
everyday IT needs.
