Computer Lab Rules

To use the computers, you have to follow the KCTCS Code of Student Conduct and the KCTCS Information Technology Responsible Use Policy.

  • There are lab assistants in the computer lab to help you. Follow their instructions.
  • The lab is supposed to be used for school work for KCTCS and WKU students, staff, faculty, and graduates. Children of students are not allowed in the lab due to liability issues.
  • Login with your student ID to use a computer. Remember to sign out when you are finished because any rules that are broken while you are logged in, could be tracked and traced back to you.
  • You can print as long as it's something for class.
  • Please try to be as quiet as you can because other students may be studying or taking tests.
  • Please turn your cell phone's ringer off and go into the hallway if you need to use it.
  • If  someone else is offended by something you are viewing online, you could be asked to close it. If your instructor has asked you to view a site that might be questionable, just let  the lab assistants know beforehand.
  • Copying any copyrighted material, such as music, is prohibited.
  • No food, drinks, or tobacco use in the lab. E-cigarettes are also prohibited because the vapor is an irritant to those who suffer from respiratory ailments.
  • Use of any of the computers for moneymaking purposes is prohibited.
  • If you leave your computer for more than 10 minutes, it might be logged off and made available for other students.
  • In case of a fire alarm or dangerous weather conditions, you must evacuate the room. Computers could be turned off.
  • Elizabethtown Community and Technical College is not responsible for personal items left unattended.
