To use a computer in any of the ITS computer labs, simply go to any open computer and login with your UH Username and Password. You must have a current active UH student, faculty, or staff affiliation to be able to authenticate with the lab computers. If you do not have a valid UH Username, have forgotten your password, or are having problems logging into a computer, please see an ITS Lab Monitor for assistance.

If you are in a special program or class that is authorized to use one of our labs, you may login to the computers with your VIA (Visitor Internet Access) login and password. Consult your department or program for information regarding VIA access.


There is no time limit on the use of computers as long as there are no people waiting. A time limit of 2 hours per session will be enforced when there are people waiting. Anyone who is using a computer for more than 2 hours per session may be asked by an ITS lab monitor to give up the computer to the next person on the waiting list.


In all ITS computer labs, user's who wish to use a computer will need to sign on the waiting list if no computers are available. Once a user logs out of the machine, the lab monitor will instruct the next person in line to sit at the computer and login. If you are not present when a computer becomes available, you will lose your spot on the waiting list and will need to sign in again.


  1. The lab is not responsible for deleted print jobs, print errors, etc. We recommend using PRINT PREVIEW before sending your print job. If the printer jams, we will only replace the pages that are lost.
  2. Limit print jobs to 50 pages at a time. Print jobs over 50 pages will automatically be deleted.
    If you are going to print PDF or PowerPoint files, please limit print jobs to 10 pages at a time.
  3. Cost for printing is 11 cents per page.
  4. Print jobs are deleted 30 minutes after they are sent.
  5. No transparency or custom printing is allowed. Printing transparencies or using heavy paper may damage the printer and thus is not allowed.


By logging in to a computer, you agree to all ITS Lab rules and policies. Failure to comply with any of the rules or policies will result in immediate removal from the lab. Please refer to the UH IT Policy online at

  4. DO NOT change any of the computer settings OR install software.
  5. It is illegal to copy or distribute software and its documentation without the permission of the copyright owner. If you are caught copying or downloading copyrighted software, legal action will be taken against you. Please refer to the following link for a complete list of copyright policies.
  6. There will only be one seat per station. Do not move chairs within the lab or bring any outside chairs from the library into the ITS lab. The computer lab is not a group work area, please take your conversations outside.
  7. Use of cell phones are prohibited (including but not limited to voice calling, or texting which involves audible notification). Please answer your phone calls outside of the CLIC lab and silence any ringers or notifications.



You must bring in media if you are planning to save your work, and a library copy card (with money on it) if you are planning to use the printers. All documents saved to the computer will be removed, upon reboot/log off.

The labs will not be responsible for loss of data, damage, loss of personal items, or personal injury. It is your responsibility to maintain periodic backups of your data.


If needed, seek assistance from on-duty monitors around the lab or behind the service counter.

The monitors are primarily responsible for assisting users to login/out, helping users get a session started/terminated, maintaining the general appearance of the lab, and other help desk functions.

The monitors are not responsible for doing your work for you. Please take the time to learn how to use the computers effectively. The monitors cannot teach each individual how to do everything, nor are they expected to know all the answers. The monitors can help you look through online manuals for assistance with specific software in the labs.


Important announcements as well as general information are posted on the bulletin board and service counter area.
