TLS Computer Lab and Software
Tulane Law School Computing Facilities
Our student computing facilities currently include a 20 station student PC computing lab running Windows 7 on the 4th floor of the library. Software provided includes the Microsoft Office 2013 suite (MS Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Access), Microsoft Outlook electronic mail, as well as Lexis/Nexis and Westlaw access via the web.
Printing is supported through 7 networked HP 6000 laser printers which duplex printing is available. All students with notebook computers can access the Internet from anywhere in the law school via an 802.b/g/n wireless network (Eduroam). If you have a notebook computer and would like assistance configuring it for the Tulane network, or have questions about laptop connectivity, go to the Wireless Network Connection page for step by step installation or please make an appointment with Computing Services through the Help Desk in Room 405 or call x8666.
Law students can login to any computer in the lab with their Tulane University credentials used to access Wavemail and all other university Web-based resources. Students who need to change their Tulane passwords can do so at the TU Self Service Password Portal at https://password.tulane.edu.
Each student user is allowed 500 MB of storage on the student server. The primary function of this space is to provide storage for certain system and temporary files, as well as spooling space for printing. Though you may store files here (this space appears as your “J:” drive), it is not recommended as a long term solution. Approaching this 500 megabyte limit may produce errors both when you attempt to save a document as well as when you try to print. It is highly recommended that you keep several backup copies of all of your work on either USB drives or writable CDs. However the J Drive is a safe place to store one of your copies of works in progress and other documents that need short term safe keeping in multiple locations. Never depend solely on a single copy of an important document.
Each student work station provides the following computer programs ( access them from the START menu):
- Internet Explorer 10
- Microsoft Office 2013
- Word 2013
- Excel 2013
- Access 2013
- PowerPoint 2013
