CAEN Labs & Other Areas with the CLSE

The tables below list the CAEN-managed computer labs and other on-campus locations with computers that run the CAEN Lab Software Environment (CLSE). Several locations offer additional features such as stations for collaborative group work, and monitor-only stations for connecting a personal device. There are different types of CAEN labs available, including:

  • Standard CAEN Labs – Spaces that offer computer stations available to students on an open, walk-up basis. These can include both individual, and collaborative/group stations.
  • Instructional CAEN Labs – Designated CAEN-managed spaces that are reservable by instructors for course-related work. All reservable labs include a large monitor(s) or projector(s) for instructors to display content to the audience, as well as multiple computers for students to work on.
  • Classroom Dual-purpose Labs – Similar to instructional CAEN labs, these spaces are designated as Engineering classrooms, which can be reserved for regularly-scheduled courses, computer instruction, or project-based learning.

All CAEN-managed computer labs are available for student walk-in use when not reserved. A display outside the entrance will provide the reservation schedule.

In addition, many common areas around the College, such as lounges, atriums, and study spaces, have CAEN computers available for walk-up use. Other spaces on campus, including in the Duderstadt Center and at some ITS-managed computing sites, offer standard walk-up access to computers running the CLSE.
