Lab Funding

There are three different kinds of funds for labs: 

  • Tech fee labs (e.g. the GAC lab or the third floor of Cofrin Library): these computers are replaced every three years. 
  • Lab mod: these labs can be requested once or recurring each year.  Lab mod requests need to go through the Lab Mod committee. There are two types of lab mods: 
    • Non-recurring: computers are recycled PCs from other areas of the University.  The labs are hand-me-downs from tech fee labs. 
    • Recurring: computers are replaced every four years. 
  • Department lab: departments pay for the computers and monitors within these labs.  When a computer needs to be replaced, it is up to the department to provide funds.  Departments must also pay user support fees for all the computers each year.
