Food and Drinks

Food and drinks are not allowed in the classrooms and labs. Please leave drinks on the floor near the door if you wish to bring them to class/lab. Computer classes are full and it's important for all computers to be working, not damaged by spilled drinks or crumbs.

Network Connections and Use of Personal Laptops

Students who bring their own laptops to class may use the wireless internet connections available in the room. Click here for directions on connecting to the network. If help is needed to setup a connection to it, you may bring your laptop to the Technology Center in WCOB 246 between the hours of 8:00am - 5:00pm.

If for some reason you are unable to connect to the wireless internet, please sit at the "empty" desks at the ends of the rows where there are no computers. There should be a network cord on the back of the desk that personal laptops can be plugged into.

If there are no free connections, or students are unable to see from the ends of the rows, students may sit at a classroom computer and use the cable connection from it to plug into their personal computers. STUDENTS MUST PLUG THIS CONNECTION BACK INTO THE CLASSROOM MACHINE AT THE END OF CLASS. If the connection is not restored to the classroom machine, this privilege may be taken away.

If power is needed for your laptop, please plug it into one of the outlets on the left or right side of the room. 

General Access Lab Printing

The Walton College strictly adheres to the University of Arkansas printing policy. For general printing policy click here

The University uses a printing quota system, called PrintSmart.  All students receive a free quota of printing at the beginning of each semester equivalent of 600 single-sided black toner pages, or a value of $30 in any combination of the following:

  • Laser printer, black, single-sided, $.05 per page
  • Laser printer, black, double-sided, $.08 per page
  • Color printer, single-sided, $.20 per page

When you print in a public or academic lab, your remaining PrintSmart quota will be displayed at the print release station located near the printers.

If you have exceeded your quota, the cost required to print will be displayed, and you must swipe your University ID card at the release station to pay from your Razorbucks account or use a copy card.  If you need to add money to your Razorbuck card, it can be done here.

Students can also check AVAILABLE PRINT QUOTA online using their GACL login. Printing is for academic purposes only and not for personal use.
