Computer Labs

Biltmore 3032, CNR’s instructional computer lab, is open to all students taking courses within the college. Located on the third floor of Biltmore Hall, this two-room facility consists of a 24-seat scheduled lab and a 12-seat drop-in lab that houses 36 multimedia equipped PCs. When the instructional room does not have scheduled classes, it is available for student use while the smaller drop-in lab is free for all CNR students to use during the times that the lab is open.

During the fall and spring semesters, the CNR Computer Lab in Biltmore 3032 is open in the evenings and on weekends. However, graduate students in the college may have 24-hour access to the Biltmore 3032-a drop-in lab via a keypad entry system once they have contacted the CNR IT staff for approval.  cnr_help@ncsu.edu

The computers run Windows 7 with a large variety of software to meet student needs including the Microsoft Office Suite as well as SAS and SPSS for statistical work. In addition, the workstations run specialized software such as WinGEMS, a simulation program, and ArcGIS, a GIS application.
