Computer Labs

The Computer Science Department maintains two teaching labs exclusively for the use of CS students.  Both of these labs are equipped with late model computers running Linux, Microsoft Windows™, and Mac OS X operating systems.  The department also operates its own Solaris server which serves as the department's file, email, and web server.  Students have a wide variety of software available for their use, and we are able to quickly update or implement student suggestions.  There are also student system administrator positions where students can work with our sysadmin to learn about and maintain these labs.

In addition to these computing labs, the department has been developing specialized systems for use in classes.  For students taking Networking or Operating Systems courses, we have dedicated hardware on which they can run code directly. Work is also underway for developing a dedicated system for the Computer Security course.

King Building

Located at: King Building
10 North Professor St., Oberlin, OH 44074-1097

As the main classroom building for social sciences, humanities, math, and computer science classes, King is always bustling. In addition to classrooms, large lecture halls have data/video projectors with touch-screen controls and network access. Offices of the departments of anthropology, classics, computer science, East Asian studies, expository writing, mathematics, philosophy, and sociology are located in King. Designed by Minoru Yamasaki in 1966, the building resembles the adjacent Conservatory of Music.
