Linux Lab Information

Computing and Software Systems provides a drop-in Linux lab in UW1-320. The room is accessible through id card access to all CSS department students.

The CSS Linux Laboratory adjoins to the Windows Laboratory and provides on-site access. The lab has 16 desktop workstations (Intel® Core™ i9-10920X -12 Core -3.5GHz Processor, 32GB RAM, 1TB HDD, Nividia RTX 3070), with wide screen monitors, 2 large TV monitors, white boards with wheels, printer, and power stations.

Besides the computer and A/V equipment, the Linux Laboratory has a large white board and number of tables and comfortable chairs for group projects, discussions, homework, and quiet study.  The lab also has a small refrigerator and microwave, courtesy of the CSS program, for student use. Please follow the posted usage policy.

For more information about what software is installed and what the available hardware is please visit the UWB CSS Wiki Linux Lab page.

Logging in

To log-in, use your Seattle Campus UW NetID and password. If you do not have an UW NetID, you will need to obtain one before you can log-on to the workstations.

Contact the IS help desk in LB2-218 or visit the Get your UW NetID page.

Once you have obtained your UW NetID and are enrolled in a CSS class you will be automatically given access to the Linux lab machines. If you are still unable to connect send mail to uwbit@uw.edu specifying your name, your student ID number, and your UW NetID.

If accessing the machines from the internet, connect to them in the same manner as other uniform-access machines such as Dante. Use PuTTY (SSH) if connecting from Windows, SSH Secure Shell, or other SSH2 client to connect to them and run command-line programs or to transfer files.
