Compuer lab hours vary, but during Fall and Spring semesters, the lab generally is open Monday-Thursday from 10:00 am-5:00 pm and Friday 10:00 am-2:00 pm. During the Summer semester, the lab is closed; however, other computer labs are open on campus such as in the Burruss Building.


The Wellstar College has Ricoh printers for student use both in the computer lab, HS 3306, and in the vending area on the 1st floor. The cost of printing is $0.10 per normal page and $0.50 for color printing using funds on the KSU ID card. The lab does not have a station for putting money on the cards or for purchasing a temporary card, but these options are available at the nearby Burruss and Library buildings. Students can send documents to the printers either from the computers in the HS 3306 lab, or from their personal laptop via the online printing app.
