Computer Use Policy

Data Services lab computers may be used by NYU users on a walk-in basis. However, workstations can be reserved by NYU faculty, staff, and students for data and statistical projects by contacting a consultant or using the web appointment form. Users working without reservations will be asked to relocate to another workstation when a computer has been reserved for project use.  Use of the Data Services lab is governed by the following guidelines:

Data Services Workstations require an NYU NetID and password for use. During staffed hours, faculty and matriculating students of Consortium and Affiliated Institutions may request Guest Access from the Data Services desk. Access will be provided at the discretion of Data Services Staff.
