Welcome to Computer Science

The Bryn Mawr College Computer Science environment encompasses four computer labs and numerous network facilities that serve the department's students and faculty. If you are taking a Computer Science class that requires a CS account, your professor will arrange to have one created for you. For more details, please contact systems at cs dot brynmawr dot edu. Please observe the following rules when working in the labs:

  • Do not power off the lab computers.
  • Do not disconnect lab computers from the network. The eduroam wireless network is available for personal machines.
  • Lock the screen when leaving a computer unattended, and log out when finished using it.
  • Please take care with food and drink around the lab computers.
