Location and hours for all UW General Access Labs.

MGH Introductory Programming Lab (IPL)

The department operates an Introductory Programming Lab (IPL) that is located on the third floor of Mary Gates Hall. TAs and consultants will be available at the lab to help students with problems. The recommended software for the course is the TextPad editor for Windows and Sun's JDK 5.0 compiler for Java.

Mary Gates Hall Computer Resource Center (CRC)

The CRC contains PCs on which has been installed Windows 2000, Sun's Java Development Kit (JDK), Dr. Java, and other software for CSE142/143.  There is a fee for each page that you have printed. Please see the UWired web site for additional information on lab policies.

Odegaard Undergraduate Library (OUGL)

OUGL has a large number of PCs and other equipment.  Some of their older machines will not have CSE142/143 courseware installed.

Lab Help

TAs will be on duty in the lab at various times during the week. They can help answer programming questions that arise while you are working on homework in the lab. Check the Lab Helper Schedule to see when someone will be on duty.  There are also lab assistants on duty to check users in and out, to answer questions about operating the equipment, and to retrieve print-outs.
