Open Computer Labs

Beginning March 30, 2020, computer labs will be available to WCJC students who do not have access to a computer or internet service.  Space is limited to ensure that all CDC guidelines related to social distancing are adhered to.

To use computer facilities at the Wharton and Richmond campuses, students must make a reservation using the following links. Reservations are limited to one hour; any student who needs additional time should reserve multiple time slots. Example: A student who needs two hours of computer access should make a reservation for both the 10:00am and 11:00am slots.  Reservation end times will be strictly enforced.
