Fall Semester 2021 Update: Pace University administration has announced plans to return to mostly in-person classroom instruction for on-campus courses. Therefore, starting in September 2021, all ITS computer classrooms will be reversed to their standard configuration for in-person teaching and learning. The New York City Tech Zone and Pleasantville CRC Lab will also be ‘mostly’ reversed to the standard in-person configuration. However, a small number of machines will be kept for remote access use only (see Remote Access to Computers section below).

Please note that our facilities may be operating with reduced or no staff at certain times. However, all lab users must follow the University's established protocols and stated guidelines for everyone's protection. Learn more about the university protocols for returning to campus.

Computers Around Campus

To help maintain computer availability, we have temporarily redistributed a number of computers to other areas around the New York City and Pleasantville campuses. For a list of current locations, please see Campus Locations for Satellite ITS Lab Computers. We will continue to update the list as new locations are confirmed. Users of these computers are expected to disinfect the equipment before and after use.
