Please observe the following rules:
Computer Lab Access is for Suffolk University students and employees only.
Guest Access: Campus departments or groups may sponsor user access to the computer labs for designated campus visitors. To request visiting user access, a sponsor employed by Suffolk University must contact the Service Desk prior to the desired start date. The sponsor will be notified of the visitor's username and password.
- Absolutely no food or drink is allowed in the lab.
- Printing in the lab is for course related work only. Please review your work before printing to avoid wasting paper and toner and please do not print your personal work. This includes personal Internet downloads and email. If your work did not print out the first time there may be a problem with the printer, do not continue to print until you check with a lab attendant. Continuous print ques will tie up the printer and affect everyone’s print requests.
- You are welcome to access the Internet and read and send email. Please surf responsibly. We ask that you please be considerate of fellow students when there is a waiting list. Remember, some people need to complete work assignments and do not have a computer at home. Preference will be given to those who need a computer for class related work over students surfing the web for personal use.
- There is a lab attendant available at the service desk who can assist you with functional use of the equipment and basic questions about the software. Please be aware that the lab attendant is not a tutor. If you need help with understanding or completing an assignment, please see your instructor for help.
- Finally, please remember to clean up after yourself, close out of all programs and remove your disk.
Thank you for keeping the lab enjoyable by following these rules.

Operation Paper Cut
An extraordinary amount of paper and ink is used when printing out entire pages of websites, articles, emails or other electronic material. It is common knowledge that producing paper takes a tremendous toll on our environment. The consequences of paper waste are well known and can be limited. It not only reduces the environmental impact but cuts down university costs, including energy consumption.
In addition to using recycled paper, there is mandated double-sided printing in all Computer Labs.
The Suffolk University community is taking steps to reduce its carbon footprint and its paper consumption with the adoption of Operation Paper Cut.
Suffolk provides a printing allotment of 1250 pages per semester (in the form of a $62.50 credit to your RAM Suffolk University ID card) to each student enrolled in the Law School. You will be allowed to roll over any unused amounts from your printing allotment from the fall semester to the spring semester.
Suffolk provides a printing allotment of 500 pages per semester to each student enrolled in the College of Arts and Sciences and the Sawyer Business School.
The Computer Lab machines and laptop printers have been configured for the new PaperCut process.
