For the Science faculty C&CZ manages a large number of machines that anybody with an account can use. Employees should take note of the section Reservation below.

There are no seperate Unix/Linux computer labs. TK023 (HG00.023) and TK761 (HG03.761) are dualboot computer labs. During startup of the PC it is possible to boot Linux(Fedora) or WindowsXP. Also in the Studielandschap (HG00.201) and near the Mathematics department (HG03.761) a number of managed Linux computers are available.

Available computer labs

The Science Faculty provides the following computer labs:

  • TK023, (HG00.023)

Study landscape and Library of Science

The Science faculty has a Study landscape (HG00.201, access through the Science Library HG00.011) where you can study and e.g. connect a privately owned laptop to the faculty wired network. There is a collection of study books of all disciplines. The books can be used freely but cannot be borrowed. There is also a special copier for books available and a black and white laserprinter. The small siderooms (HG00.206, HG00.209, HG00.212 en HG00.215) can be used by employees or students for meetings, etc. Reservation of these rooms can be made at the 'doorman' of the study landscape. There are simple PC's available in these siderooms.

  • Study landscape (HG00.201)
    40 Managed PC's (Pentium IV, 2.8Ghz, 1GB, 17" LCD monitor, sound) with WindowsXP.
    6 Managed Linux PC's (Pentium IV, 2.8Ghz, 1GB, 17" LCD monitor, sound) with Linux (Fedora).
  • Self study rooms (HG00.206, HG00.209, HG00.212 and HG00.215)
    4 times 2 Managed PC's with WindowsXP.
  • Library of Science (HG00.011)
    8 group-usable Managed PC's and 19 quiet-room Managed PC's. The only difference is that these are owned by the Science Library, who can hand out logins for a day to non-Science employees/students.
  • Central street (in column front of Library HG00.011)
    4 Managed PC's to lookup information fast, also by non-Science users.


Just like collegezalen or colloquiumkamers, computer labs can be reserved for courses. One should consider the follwing:

  • Reservation of the computer lab.

To make a reservation, get in contact with Zaalreservering, department IHZ (Interne en Huishoudelijke Zaken), room HG00.040, telefoon 52010. N.B.: This is only for the reservation of the computer lab.

  • Admittance to computer labs is arranged by an admittance procedure.
  • All students in a course must have an Account.
  • Installed software. Besides MS Windows with MS Office or Linux with Open Office, a lot of extra software is always available on the PC's in the computer labs. See: Windows applications, Linux applications.
  • Additional software for courses must be installed by the system management of C&CZ.
    It is not possible to get Administrative- or Power User privileges for installing additional software or running problematic programs.
  • Especially new software for the computer labs should be requested at the earliest possible moment (at least two weeks in advance).
    This is needed because system management must figure out if the software can run using ordinary user privileges, to package the software and finally to distribute the package to the PC's in the requested computer lab(s). It has happened that certain software could not be used because of security and maintainability reasons, an alternative software package had to be found, packaged, installed and used during the course.

If a computer lab is not reserved for a course, anybody with an account can use any of the PC's available.

Computer lab usage

The usage of the computer labs is monitored at computer lab usage. Because of technical reasons the usage of the GIS PC lab (HG02.702) and the siderooms of the Studielandschap is not registered.

Behaviour in the labs

It is not allowed to smoke, eat or drink in the computer labs, this is to protect the equipment. Do not cause annoyances to other users, like disturbing sounds, long term screen lock, ...). Also there is a priority to use a PC: highest priority has the course that has reserved the computer lab, next are employees or students working on courses, essays and reports.
