Student Labsisginf maintains public student computer labs that are open to all students, members and guests of the Department of Computer Science (D-INFK). These labs are also used for courses and exercises. The current booking of the rooms can be checked in our online booking system.
|Room||Installations||Computers||Number of Computers|
|CAB H 56||Dual boot Microsoft Windows 10 and Ubuntu 22.04||stud1-h56 - stud26-h56||26|

Additionally, there are Linux login servers available for remote access. For help and support for workstations in these rooms, you may want to read on here.
Select Operating SystemAll student lab computers have Microsoft Windows and Ubuntu installed. Once a workstation is powered on and the BIOS has initialized all hardware, a boot selector lets you start the operating system of your choice. To switch the running operating system you must reboot the workstation. By default the workstation will start Windows.
User AccountsTo log in to the workstation in the labs you need an IAM user account. All students and D-INFK members can log in to both Windows and Linux using their ETH user name and mail service password.
Home DirectoryOn Linux as well as Windows in the public student labs, your ETH home directory (provided by IT Services of ETH Zurich) is used to store personal data. (Windows: \\d.ethz.ch\users\u\user ; Linux: //nas-nethz-users.ethz.ch/share-u-$/user ). The Linux home directory and Windows profile are in the directory
PrintingThe default printer for both labs is in CAB H 57. An alternative printer of the same type is in front of CAB G 52. Both printers are configured in all operating systems in the labs. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if the printer has problems (paper jam, not enough toner, mechanical problems, out of paper, etc.)
