Student Technology Centers
WKU provides Student Technology Centers (general usage computer labs for all students)
at seven locations on the main campus. There is also one Student Technology Center
(STC) at each regional campus location, and another at South Campus location. STC
labs are equipped with the latest hardware, software, scanners, and laser printing.
The Mass Media and Technology Hall lab is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week during
fall and spring semesters. STC labs are restricted for the use of current WKU students
only, and you will use your NetID to log in.

as well as troubleshoot technical problems. They are not allowed to help with homework

B/W laser printing is free, up to the amount of your printing allocation for each year. For details, see the Lab Printing page.
Color printing is available in Helm 2F and JRH 145 labs. It costs 50 cents per page.
