IQSS Computer Labs
We host multiple state-of-the-art computing labs for faculty, visiting scholars, post-docs, students, and staff
Who can Access?
The IQSS Computer Labs use FAS active directory accounts that must be activated for use in our labs. New patrons can do this by signing up for lab access at the Lab Help Desk during regular business hours. Please note that we will need to see a valid Harvard ID card when signing up.
Harvard affiliated patrons who do not have FAS active directory accounts may sign up for lab access, and the Lab Help Desk will sponsor a FAS active directory account for your use. Please note that this process may take up to one business day to complete for new users.
