The CS TEACHING Computing Environment ("CS-TEACHING") is a collection of hosts meant to support the computing requirements of CS courses. All students taking CS courses or are in the Math Faculty have access to the general-use Mac and Linux labs except when posted. Specialty labs are restricted to the students taking the course(s) that require the equipment they offer. From the student point of view, many aspects are shared with the Math Faculty Computing Facility.
