  • In accordance with Computer Lab policy, the 2nd floor of the Computer Lab will close at 11:45pm, and students on those floors who wish to continue studying will be required to go to the third floor*.


Swiping ID Cards

  • At midnight, all students in the facility must come to a Computer Lab service desk and swipe their Liberty University ID card.
  • Students who enter the Computer Lab during the extended hours are also required to come to the Computer Lab service desk and swipe their ID card.
  • When a student wishes to leave the facility they must come back to a service desk and swipe their card again.

Involving LUPD or disrupting of the study environment may result in prohibiting the student’s use of the Computer Lab’s extended hours.
