Instructor Use of Computer Classroom Facilities
Facilities with alarms are armed whenever a computer drop-in lab or classroom is closed. If you are using an armed facility before or after normal hours, you will be responsible for arming and disarming the alarms. Facilities that are not equipped with alarms are to be locked with the doors closed when not in use.
