The CTE manages five computer classrooms that are available for semester-long courses as well as for ad-hoc bookings.

Faculty or staff members can request ad-hoc bookings of classrooms, with the understanding that the requester will be responsible for overseeing the use of the computer classroom. All requests for a classroom should be for use of the computers in the room. If you would like to reserve a room for a particular date, please contact us at or 617.552.3826. If you would like to book a room for the semester, please complete this request form.

Courses requiring specialized software will be given first priority when scheduling these computer labs for an entire semester. Once all specialized software users have been placed, we will attempt to accommodate the remaining requests or suggest possible alternatives.

Specialized software falls into one of the following three categories:

  • Statistical/Modeling (e.g. SPSS, HLM, Stata, Arc GIS)
  • Video Editing (e.g. Avid Media Composer)
  • Graphic/Web Design & Programming (e.g. Adobe Creative Suite)

Anything that does not fall into one of the above categories is considered non-specialized software.

If you need specialized software installed in one of these classrooms, please let us know at least two weeks in advance.
