UCR Campus Computer Labs

STS maintains four public computer labs featuring approximately 77 computers available for academic use by all UCR students, with open hours of approximately 160 hours per week. Whether you prefer to work on a PC or a Macintosh, just need to type a Word document or need to edit a project in Photoshop, the student computer labs are here to support you.

To login to the STS computer labs, use your UCR Net ID and password.

Additionally, STS also supports a virtual computer lab through Apporto. Students can join this lab from a web browser and access software virtually without the need for download. Students can find instructions on how to access Apporto below. Instructors interested in learning about how to incorporate Apporto into their courses can learn more in the ITS Knowledge Base.
