In 2011, 20,956 students used at least one of the nearly 1,500 computers available in UCI’s instructional computing labs. Demand for scheduled labs and specialized software has been increasing and older equipment is in need of replacement; some computers are 7 years old and cannot continue to be deployed due to outdated software; others are unsupportable due to hardware failures.
This year we will be updating some of these labs with new equipment. This will also allow us to relocate some of the current computers to other labs making it better overall. The new equipment will be going into the Student Center, Natural Sciences 1, and the MSTB labs.
