Technology in the Marine Studies Building (MAR)

Copy Machine

A copy machine is located in the SMEA Main Office. Each student is provided with a unique copy code by Suanty. If you have forgotten your code, please contact Suanty to get it (skag...@uw.edu or 206-543-7004). You will need to enter your code prior to making any copies. Copies cost $0.07 per page and are billed at the end of each month. Once total copy charges reach $2.00 a bill will be placed in your mailbox. Accumulated charges under $2.00 will be billed just before graduation. For questions on billing, please contact Suanty Kaghan, Administrative Specialist, at skag...@uw.edu or 206-543-7004.

SMEA Student Computer Lab

The SMEA Student Computer Lab is located in room 270 of the Marine Studies Building.  It is open 24 hours a day for SMEA students with keys, and during normal building hours for students without keys.  The lab is generally locked at all times, but open when students are present.  When the room is locked, students without keys may request the door to be unlocked by asking any SMEA staff member.  When the door is unlocked: THE LAST STUDENT LEAVING MUST LOCK THE DOOR.  Per UW policies, the lab MUST remain locked if no students are present inside.

Workstations and Software

The lab contains 14 PCs and 1 flatbed scanner with an Automatic Document Feeder (ADF).  Additionally, headphones and foot-pedal-controls for transcribing are located near the printer.

Printing

Printing is free for students in the computer lab. SMEA provides black toner; however, students must supply their own paper. You will need to enable duplexing under "Finishing" of the Printing Preferences menu. You can also print in color if you send the job to SMEA Print, the copier/scanner/printer in the main SMEA office.
