Arts & Sciences Computer Lab Use Policy

ID Cards

Please carry your WUID card with you while using the lab. You may be asked to present your WUID card at any time; if you do not have it with you, you may be asked to leave Eads Hall.

Non-Academic Use

Academic work by current Arts & Sciences students takes precedence over all other uses of the lab, including but not limited to non-academic games, chatting, email, or web surfing. A user engaged in non-academic activity may be asked to give up his/her computer to allow another user to carry out legitimate academic work.

Respect for Others Using the Facilities

Use of the computer facilities should not hamper or interfere with the ability of other students to do academic work. Activities to be avoided include but are not limited to excessive computer volume, loud conversation or laughter, use of offensive language, viewing of offensive or explicit imagery, cell phone calls, and other disruptive behavior.

Viewing of pornography or other sexually explicit materials in the lab is not appropriate. Since it is nearly impossible to avoid seeing images displayed on other users’ computer screens, the printing, displaying or playing of sexually explicit or potentially offensive materials in this space could create a hostile working or learning environment in violation of University policies. If anyone in the lab sees you engaging in such activity, you may be asked to stop the activity immediately and/or leave the computer lab.

If you have legitimate academic need for viewing such materials (as verified by your instructor), please ask a staff member about arranging a more private location where other lab patrons will not be disturbed by your activity.

Tampering with Hardware or Software is Prohibited

Lab patrons are prohibited from moving, modifying, or tampering with lab hardware or system software. This includes installing or removing peripherals (power cords, monitors, mice, keyboards, hardware devices) without expressed consent from the Lab Consultant on duty.

Piracy of Copyrighted Material is Prohibited

Arts & Sciences Computing equipment may not be used to copy any copyrighted material beyond academic fair use. Violators may have their lab privileges revoked and be subject to school, civil, and/or criminal penalties.

Use of Five Day Storage

Software, copyrighted material, and files over 25 MB in size may not be installed on Five Day Storage. Arts & Sciences Computing will remove any inappropriate materials.

Official University Policies

All activities using Arts & Sciences Computing resources must conform to all Washington University Computing Policies (including but not limited to the Washington University Computer Use Policy), the Washington University Policy on Sexual Harassment, and all other appropriate school policies, laws, and regulations.


Minor infractions of these policies, when accidental, are generally resolved informally. Repeated infractions and serious misconduct are subject to referral to the Judicial Administrator for disciplinary action, campus police, or other appropriate authorities.
