MOST FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
I just want to print. Why do I need to sign in?
A requirement for using the lab is that your Kean ID must be swiped and that the swipe message shows "Permitted." You may then use computer #25 or #36 to print out your document.
You will also need your Kean/Google e-mail ID/password in order to print through the print management software. If you do not know our ID/password, please contact OCIS at 908-737-6000 or go to Campus School South.
I do not have my ID with me, can I still use the lab?
No. Presently, we swipe IDs, so it will be necessary to have your valid ID in hand. If you have forgotten your ID, you may fill out a Permission Slip on a onetime basis and have it approved by the lab supervisor, Holly Hoffman.
I cannot log on.

lab, we do not permit loud talking in the lab. You may borrow a
laptop from the lab to take The Grand Study Hall for this purpose.
