Guidelines for Using MPA Computer Lab

Welcome to MPA Computer Lab! The Lab is located at IASBO 112. We want to provide all users a comfortable and friendly environment. For this purpose, we will try to be as accommodating as possible, and it is also necessary to execute following policies so as to maintain a good environment for everyone:

  • Food and drink are not allowed in the lab.
  • Students are not allowed to install any software or program in the computers.
  • When a lab attendant is not on duty, lab users are responsible for the lab safety.
  • When using computers, students are expected to save their files onto their own disks, not onto the hard drives.
  • Do not try to change the configurations of computer's operating system.
