For Students

The Computer Lab is located in the School of Music (804 West Belden Ave) room 217. Here you will find twelve Apple iMac computers available for use by currently enrolled students, faculty and staff during open lab hours.

Computer Lab Hours

Fall 2021 Computer Lab Hours are TBD (based on COVID guidance).

Please be aware that the Computer Lab schedule may be disrupted due to lab staffing constraints, single class reservations or unscheduled maintanence. These availability interruptions are infrequent but can happen.

Installed Software

There is standard software installed on each computer (MS Office and Apple iWork applications) as well as Finale and Sibelius for notation. Each computer also has iMovie, Garageband and Audacity installed for music and video production. Workstations 4-9 have ProTools installed.


The Computer Lab maintains a collection of headphones that are available for loan. Please see the Lab Monitor on duty to request a pair. You will be required to submit your student ID in exchange for the headphones and adapter. When you are finished with the headphones and adapter, please return them to the Lab Monitor and you'll receive your student ID in return.


Students may check out a piano keyboard from the Lab Monitor on duty. These keyboards plug into the USB port on the back of the computer.

Food and Drink

Please refrain from bringing food or (non-water) beverages into the lab. Water is allowed as long as it is transported in a sealable container and placed on the floor away from the computers.

Each School of Music classroom and lab computer is configured to print to the University print release system called "Intelliprint." When you print, you will be asked to enter your Campus Connect username. Your print job will then be sent to the system. You can retrieve your print-out from any Lincoln Park Campus print release station by swiping your student ID through the card reader.

In addition to using School of Music printers to print, you may install the Intelliprint software on your personal Mac or PC and print to any Lincoln Park Campus print release station.
