Library Computers for Students, Faculty and Staff

You'll find computers on each floor of the library, most requiring a UMD internet ID and password. Every floor has at least some Windows computing access - including basic access AND full access.

First floor

On first floor in the lobby and alcove we have 10 Windows thin clients. Each thin client offers basic access to basic access students, and full access to the students who are on the full-access list.

Second floor

The second floor has two Macs, and four Windows thin clients.

Third floor

The third floor has numerous Macs, some of which are designated as either basic access or full access. Also four Windows thin clients.

Fourth floor

The fourth floor has 30 Windows thin clients.

See library maps.

If you are a UMD student, staff, or faculty member and need technical help, ask the ITSS lab attendant at the far right of the circulation desk, 218-726-8858. Or call the ITSS main help desk at 218-726-8847.

  • The UMD WiFi network is available to UMD-affiliated laptop and device users.
  • For quick access regardless of affiliation, we have "library catalog only" computers on the first, third, and fourth floors of the library.

Basic Access and Full Access

Currently enrolled students and faculty/staff can sign in to any Windows Desktop Computing thin client, and your registration will determine whether you are served basic access or full access. Students who have paid the full access lab fee will have access to additional software. See a list of installed software, as well as more information about UMD computer labs. if you wish to use a Macintosh, choose one marked as either basic access or full access on either the second or third floor. The majority of Macs are on the third floor.

Wired Network Jacks

Wired network jacks can be found in some study carrels on the third and fourth floors, and in some tables in the first floor reading room. All floors of the library have good wireless coverage.
