Public Computing Labs

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

Computing Labs

There are 17 physical 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 Lab (VCL) 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 the current versions of Matlab (Windows XP/7 & Linux) as well as Microsoft Office (Windows XP/7). Course-specific programs are also available for several schools. You can reserve a lab using the VM Manage online site.
