A word about checking in and out...
Students using the facilities at Hale Kea must check in using Starfish. Students check in on the computer kiosks at the front entrance. There is no need to check out. Checking in helps to ensure continued services and also helps us plan for future services. We really appreciate your cooperation!
Food and beverages are permitted in the study area, but no food or beverages (including water bottles) are allowed near computers.
There are 24 PC computer workstations. All computers are internet–accessible and have common software installed including Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Publisher. All computers have CD and DVD drives. There are also two USB ports available on the front of each computer.
There are four printing computer stations in the lab. Three black/white laser printers and one color printer.
