Computer labs
Campus computer labs

DVC maintains over 40 computer labs throughout the Pleasant Hill campus and the San Ramon campus. Most labs have late-model, Windows XP computers with the standard software base of Microsoft Office and Internet Explorer. They are protected by industry-standard Norton Antivirus software, and maintained by Deep Freeze disk imaging software.

Some labs are "open labs", where students can use the computers for class-related work outside of class time. Sometimes open labs are reserved for scheduled classes, during which time the computers are all reserved for class.

Other labs are for regularly-scheduled class use only. A few labs are service-oriented, open only to students using a particular DVC service.
