Computing Labs

At Duke you have access to physical and virtual computing labs.

Physical Labs

There are more than a dozen computing labs on campus, including a Multimedia Project Studio. Most labs are open 24 hours a day while classes are in session, but some have limited hours. For more details on lab locations, hardware and availability, visit the lab locations and hardware. You can also learn more about what software is available by visiting the lab software page.


Virtual Labs

Virtual Computing Manager (VCM) is a service that allows Duke users to reserve a computer with specialized software and access it remotely from anywhere that you have Internet access. Virtual machines are available for a variety of pre-packaged applications (inducing Matlab and Microsoft Office); for a complete list of available apps visit Virtual Computing Manager . Course-specific programs are also available for several schools.
