Computer Labs

Information Technology (IT) operates and provides technical support for numerous labs and other computing resources on campus. This includes open labs available to anyone in the campus community, instructional labs that can be reserved by faculty to teach a class and special purpose labs designed to meet the needs of a certain group.

  • All public computing is located in the library.  Both PCs and Macs are available for use.
  • Individual departments also maintain computer labs for student use. Check with those departments for their computer lab locations and available hours.


Printers are available 24 hours at the Library. To print from our computers in both the library and computer labs, simply log in to the computer using your NU credentials and print to the printer named “holds-queue”. Visit a printer within two hours to release your job with your NU ID Card or ID Number. You must be on the Purplehaze WIFI or hard wired to the Campus Network to be able to print.


The Wifi at NU is called Purplehaze.
