Welcome to the Open Access Labs!

What are the Open Access Labs?

The Texas A&M University Open-Access Computer Labs (OALs) are available for faculty and students of the University. Five Open-Access Labs, six supported locations, and one dedicated Printing Center provide access to email accounts as well as Web navigation, image-manipulation, DeskTop Publishing, spreadsheet applications, computer - to - computer communications software, programming languages, and a number of course-specific programs. Lab access is twenty-four hours per day when classes are in session in the Student Computing Center (SCC) in order to better serve the needs of the students and faculty.
