Computer Workstation Enhanced Classroom (WEC) and Resources
Marymount Manhattan's two WECs are a two-room suite on the 4th floor of the Main Building, next to the Information Technology office and the Cafe. The lab is used as a center for instruction and also offers opportunities for students to practice their computing and application skills. The lab consists of networked PCs running Windows. Laser printing and scanning are available, as are current software applications, Internet and email access. During open lab hours, the lab is available to all students in the MMC community. Lab hours are posted on the entrance to their labs.
In addition to the Computer Lab, there are networked PCs running Windows in the Nugent Lounge on the ground floor of the Nugent Building and in the Library, plus three standalone kiosks ready for quick browsing on the 4th floor Nugent. The College also maintains two Macintosh computer labs on the 5th floor of the Nugent Building that are available for majors and minors within the communication arts and graphic design programs. You can find out more about the Mac labs by reading about the Theresa Lang Center for Producing.
There are seven Technology Enhanced Classrooms (TECs) used by instructors to facilitate learning. These allow a full range of audio, visual, Internet, and smart blackboards to bring a wide variety of information into the classroom.
Network and email accounts
Network and e-mail accounts have been created for all MMC students. It is required that students use their own accounts when using the MMC computer network. NOTE: you must logon to one of the local computers at MMC before trying to access your email from any standard web browser - this assures your password is changed correctly and allows you future access. Should you need any technical assistance accessing your account, please come to the Information Technology office on the fourth floor of Main building, or call us at (212) 517-0580, or write us e-mail at Tech Support.
User names and passwords
Every user has an individual username and password. This information is initially generated by the IT department and given to you, but you must change your password to something only you know once you come onto campus.
Virtual Network Drive
Every account is provided with a virtual network drive U: that has a disk space of 100 MB assigned to it. Instead of saving files to a floppy drive, students may save their files in the virtual network drive and have those files available wherever they logon to any MMC computer. Generally, if you click on My Documents, this will be already pointing to your U: drive. If not, right click on My Documents icon on the desktop, select Properties, then in the Target box, type U: to replace what is currently there. At the "move files" prompt, select yes if you have local files you want moved up to your U: Drive
