Benefits and Key Features

A list of current labs is maintained in our Knowledgebase: Computer Labs


  • All lab computers are equipped with a variety of software dependent on what classes utilizing the lab require. Software versions are updated over the summer during LIT's yearly lab refresh.
  • Our Lab and Software Team maintains an up to date list of available lab software in our Knowledgebase: Current Software Versions


Lab Refresh Program

Labs are divided into three tiers:

  • Tier 1 - High end art, math, gaming, video production, and CAD computers
  • Tier 2 - Need power and graphics but do not need top tier power
  • Tier 3 - Do not need advanced performance but needs a computer for basic computing

Computers are ordered each year for two Tier 1 Windows lab and one Tier 1 Mac lab.

  • Each January the Lab and Software Team evaluate computer specification. They find the best processor, graphics, and RAM that fit within the lab refresh budget.
  • In early March, there is a campus-wide meeting with lab stakeholders to present the proposed computer specs for the upcoming refresh. Stakeholders provide feedback during this meeting.
  • Computers arrive in early summer and are inventoried, imaged, and delivered to the Tier 1 lab specified for refresh.
  • Computers from the Tier 1 labs are cascaded to Tier 2 labs.
  • Computers from the Tier 2 labs are cascaded to Tier 3 labs.

The lab refresh program allows LIT to keep our campus computer labs supplied with powerful computers for instructional use while also maximizing the equipment's life cycle.
