Facilities

The School of Computing is primarily located on the Allendale Campus and has some excellent computing facilities to support our students and faculty needs.  We have four primary computing labs, three research labs, two student project rooms, and a student success center all to support our academics.  Students have physical access to the facilities through a computing keycard that also provides access to the building after hours.
