4.1. Computer Terminal Services
There are about 1,400 computer terminals available on the
Educational Computer System throughout 26 different locations including the Multimedia Laboratory of the Media Center
South Building, Open Space Laboratories (OSLs), and satellite
laboratories of each department. These computer terminals run
Windows 7. It is also possible to use Linux using Oracle VM VirtualBox installed in the computer terminal.
Each user's files are stored in the file server at the Media Center
South Building, and the setting and files are available from any
computer terminal on the network. Files cannot be accessed by
others by default.
In addition, you can print from any computer terminal using
laser printers that are connected to the network at satellite laboratories and OSLs.
◆ Satellite Laboratories
Satellite laboratories are computer rooms located in each department, and are used for department classes. Open hours and
user conditions differ according to the department. For more information about satellite laboratory locations, refer to Appendix
◆ Open Space Laboratories (OSL)
Open Space Laboratories are computer rooms located on the
first floor of the Media Center South Building, the second floor
of the Media Center North Building, the third floor of the University Library, the second floor of the Yoshida-South Library, and
Katsura Campus Funai Community Hall. These are not used for
classes, but rather are for self learning.
In the Media Center South Building, graduate students are working as teaching assistants (TAs) and can answer user's questions.
◆ Multimedia Laboratories
Multimedia laboratories are located in the second and third
floors of the Media Center South Building, and computer terminals and video projectors are available. These are used for
liberal arts and general education courses including information
