Computer labs - Linux

There are 20 computer labs on campus where you can use Linux. The computer labs are used for scheduled teaching, but many are free to use even for self-study. I the computer rooms use the Linux distributions Ubuntu and CentOS.


All students can log into the computer rooms with the usual LiU ID and password. If you, as a new student, fail to log in, it may be because you have not registered for any course yet.

Rules and help in the computer lab

  • No food or drink in the computer lab.
  • Always lock the computer!
    It takes up to 75 minutes until you are logged out when leaving the computer locked. Temporarily leaving the computer unlocked enables others to use your account. If they perform illegal actions you are the one that is held responsible. They are also able to delete your files when you are logged in.
  • Printouts left behind in the computer lab will be removed on a regular basis.
  • Information on where the nearest printer is located is available in every computer lab.
  • Lost and found.
