Residential Computer Labs

ban121

Need a place to get away and study? Every residence hall at NIU has either a modern computer lab or a study lounge equipped with lab workstations, Anywhere Printing, Adobe Creative Suite, and more. And with NIU Wireless and powered lounge furniture and tables, NIU's study lounges and computer labs are perfect for anyone who prefers to BYOD (Bring Your Own Device). All labs are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, unless otherwise noted.

Each lab also includes an Anywhere Printer, which allows you to print, copy, and scan documents.



The Grant South Study Lounge is a newly renovated, technology-rich space designed to support your academic success. Check out the computer lab and the popular lab workstations in the lobby, the smart classroom and meeting room, new lounge furniture with plenty of power for charging your personal devices, a Collaboration Space, and the PAL/ACCESS Tutoring Center in the lower level.
