About - The lab is located in the Library and Academic Resource Center (LARC), Room 234, on the second floor, above the library.  As one of the four areas that make up the Academic Resource Center, the Computer Commons is an open computer lab, designed to support Valley College students’ academic needs. The lab offers a wide variety of software, internet access, printing, scanning, and copy services.

Equipment - The lab has 95 computers with Windows 10, and two iMac stations. Headphones and flash drives can be borrowed with your student ID card.  There are also two group study rooms available.  Students can print or make copies in black and white for 10 cents a page, and print in color for 25 cents per page. Printing instructions are posted at the print release station.  A high resolution scanner is also in the lab. 

Policy - To use the Computer Commons, students must be enrolled at LAVC in the current semester and have an LACCD student email address.  Food and drink are not allowed in the lab.  Children are not permitted entry to the Computer Commons lab, but the LAVC Family Resource Center does allow children with their LAVC student-parents at their Kid-Friendly Study Lounge, and they have four Mac computers with a printer. Check their website for details.

Assistance - Dedicated Computer Commons Help Desk staff are available to assist students with the use of computers, printing, scanning, and academic software.  The Help Desk staff are not allowed to tutor students, assist with personal, non-college related business, or handle students' personal devices.

Employment - If you're interested in joining our staff as a student worker volunteer or through the Federal Work Study program, please ask to talk to Rob at the Help Desk, Monday through Friday between 8 am and 1 pm.
