The following are the procedures for reserving a computer lab after standard business hours:

uTech will request key access from Office of Public Safety. The instructor will need to go to OPS prior to class and produce a photo ID. The key must be returned to OPS at the end of the class period unless otherwise arranged.

Staffing should be provided and funded by the requesting department. The instructor or other departmental employee must remain with the class during the entire reservation.

When the class is over, please shut down the computers, and printer(s) appropriately, turn off the lights, and close the door securely. Most doors are self-locking, however, the door must latch securely. Please test the door to be sure it is securely closed.

If questions or technical problems arise during class, please contact the uTech Support Center at (309) 298-8324 (298-TECH). Should the Support Center be closed, alternative phone numbers will be provided by uTech and are for emergency use only.
