Public Computing Availability During COVID-19

Restrictions due to COVID-19 have significantly limited on-campus access to student computing resources. We'll use this page to update you on the current status of public computing resources.


Here are options if you need to print around campus during the COVID-19 pandemic. Additional features are being investigated to further reduce COVID-19 related health risks, and will be introduced as they become available.

  • Printing will be available in a limited capacity to Graduate students starting on January 20th, 2021, and to Undergraduates starting on February 1st, 2021. To promote social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic, available printers have been limited to the following locations:
    • Huntsman Hall (JMHH)
      • Forum level (3 printers)
      • 2nd floor hallway (2 printers)
      • 3rd floor hallway (2 printers)
    • Steinberg-Dietrich Hall (SHDH)
      • Ground floor by Room 107 (2 printers)
    • Wharton Academic Research Building (WARB)
      • 1st floor printer area (1 printer)
  • Campus Copy
  • Purchase a printer. We recommend a multi-function printer so you can scan documents if needed.

Public Computing

Here are options for accessing a public computer: 

  • Use a personal computer to access our Virtual Lab. The capacity has been increased to accommodate an anticipated increase in volume.
  • Public workstations and computer labs are temporarily unavailable in Wharton buildings to reduce the risk of spreading COVID. (They are locked, and mice and keyboards have been removed.)

For more information on public computing, see the section on Public Computers and Technology.


  • Wharton's Group Study Rooms (GSRs) are only available for faculty use. Students will not have access to the GSRs.
