From ITS Wiki - Information Technology Services - University of Rhode Island
URI Information Technology Services manages the general student computing facilities which were originally funded by the 1996 State of Rhode Island Bond Referendum. These facilities provide open access to URI students, faculty, and staff. Please consult the Computing Facilities wiki page and the Computer Facilities Rental policies for more information on reservable facilities.
Lab Assistants are present in each facility to provide security and give basic assistance in using the facilities. URI faculty, staff, and students may use the facilities. Machines are available on a first-come, first-served basis. When necessary, a waiting list is maintained by the Lab Assistant. When a waiting list exists, a machine may be used for no longer than 60 minutes. All users must provide their own media for data storage.
Rules and Policies
Please cooperate in keeping the facilities neat and in order. Under no circumstances are smoking, drinking, or eating permitted. See Computing Facilities for more information on student facilities or reserving a lab for classroom use.
