Mobile Computing Lab

The Health Computing Mobile Lab consists of 20 Windows laptops in a mobile cart.

Students log in with their UW NEXUS accounts.

Laptops are updated and charged when stored in the cart so when they are used in a classroom setting they will be fully charge and updated.

Use of the Mobile Lab is restricted to rooms within AHS, BHM, LHN and LHS. 

The Mobile Lab can be booked for times between 8:30 and 4:30, Monday to Friday.

Laptop battery life will last for 3-4 hours maximum. For longer bookings, external power supplies are located on the bottom shelf of the cart.
