Poster Printing

As an additional service to students, the Labs also offer poster printing. If you’d like to print a sign or poster for your campus event or just to decorate your apartment, we can help you out. You design the poster and we’ll print it for you! Standard poster sizes are 11”x17”, 24” x 36”, and up to 36″x72″. Please allow 5 business days to complete large format poster printing. Color posters start at $5/ea and increase depending on size, ink used, and paper type. Poster printing services operate on the same payment format as CometPrint so you will need to have Comet Cash on your CometCard. If this poster is to be used on campus, please be familiar with the UTD Policy on Publicity and Signs. Contact Jacob Abraham, [email protected], for your sign/poster printing needs.

Policies for Use of the Student Microcomputer Labs

These policies apply to the use of all facilities operated by Technology Customer Services (TCS), a division of the Office of Information Technology (OIT). They are intended to facilitate the use of the labs in the best interests of all users.

  • The labs are available for use by currently registered UTD students, by current faculty at UTD, and by research and teaching assistants authorized by a faculty member through completion of an Information Technology’s electronic Computer Access Tool (eCAT).
  • New students may request UTD NetID help at any of the Labs from the first class day of the semester in which they are enrolled onward.
  • A validated UTD Comet Card must be presented in order to request a UTD computer account. No other form of ID will be accepted.
  • Only the holder of the UTD computer account may use the provided facilities or network resources. Access of your account by others (students, faculty and staff included) is prohibited and may result in revocation of your account.
  • Students are held responsible for any destructive or illegal activity done by those to whom they give access to their accounts. You may also be held responsible if the activity occurred without your knowledge or consent. If you think someone may have discovered or guessed your password, change it immediately.
  • Students who are not enrolled during the summer semester will not be allowed to use the Student Microcomputer Labs. However, those students will retain access to VPN over the summer semester. VPN currently allows students to access e-mail and allows FTP access to files in their home directories.
  • Graduating students will retain access to all their computer accounts up until, but not including, the first class day of the semester following graduation. Likewise, after that date, they will no longer be able to use the Student Microcomputer Labs.
  • Facilities can be used only for instructional, research, and academic support activities directly associated with and administered through the University of Texas at Dallas.
  • The Labs are supervised at all times by Computer Lab Assistants (CAs) who have the responsibility to ensure the security and smooth operation of the Labs in the best interest of all users.
  • No food or tobacco products are allowed in the Labs. Drinks must be in a covered container. Open containers should be stored away or disposed of before entering the Labs.
  • For their protection, children are not allowed in the Labs.
  • Students are responsible for all charges made to their UTD accounts.
  • Neither the Office of Information Technology nor the Student Microcomputer Labs are responsible for personal items left in the Labs.
  • Users are not allowed to install software or games of their own except in the rooms in which this is acceptable (ask a CA for the location of these rooms, as it may change). Even then, certain programs may be deemed unacceptable and may not be installed on the Lab machines. Any students using software not already installed on the Lab machines will have lower priority than students using the labs for instructional, research, or academic support activities.
  • When demand for machines exceeds the number available, use may be restricted.
  • TCS may offer training and provide consulting on hardware and system software operations to the extent that a user can gain access to a given application package or programming language.
  • Instruction, training, and assistance in the use of a particular application or programming language are the responsibility of the instructor or TA for a given course. Computer Lab Assistants are not required to aid students in the mechanics of these programs.
  • Hardware problems or suspected software bugs should be reported to a CA.
  • No materials or equipment may leave the Labs under any circumstances without the written permission of an OIT staff member. CAs, TAs, RAs, and faculty are not authorized to permit materials or equipment to leave the Labs.
  • To comply with Copyright and License Agreements and to protect University property, the systems may be remotely monitored on a random basis to ensure against illegal duplication of system software, application programs and/or data files that have not specifically been placed into a public area for the purpose of duplication. Appropriate disciplinary action will be taken against anyone found in the act of unauthorized duplication or using the resources of the Labs in a malicious manner.
  • The Office of Information Technology and Technology Customer Services reserve the right to refuse use of these facilities to any person or any group if it is in the best interests of the University or other users to do so.
  • The facilities are open to all UTD students, faculty, and staff irrespective of school affiliation. The policies specified here apply to all users.
