Spring Semester 2021 Update: As stated by the University, the first two weeks of the spring 2021 semester will be conducted remotely. The Pace community can begin returning to their respective campuses for in-person learning, teaching, and working on Monday, February, 8, 2021. Therefore, the NYC Tech Zone and PLV Computer Resource Center will reopen for use on Feb. 8. Please note that availability of on-site staff may be significantly reduced for safety reasons.

When visiting our facilities, please follow the University's established requirements for space and social distancing of at least six feet. We have also maintained the same modified traffic flow and computer usage restrictions that we implemented for the fall semester. Any individuals using our facilities will be responsible for cleaning and disinfecting equipment before and after use (supplies will be available) and will need to follow the 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 NYC and PLV 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.
