Computer Labs

BCC has a variety of computer labs on the Pittsfield campus and a PC lab at the South County Center in Great Barrington.

Wireless access is broadly available in all buildings.

Digital Commons

The Digital Commons is the primary computer lab and is located on the main BCC campus within the first floor of the Jonathan Edwards Library. The lab features Windows and Macintosh workstations, group workstations, free black and white printing for students, scanning and digital document assistance, and in-person user support.

Other Computer Labs

Please ask your instructor for information about other computer labs which include a Mac Lab, a GIS Lab and South County Center computers.

  • Users of the lab agree to follow the BCC Acceptable Use Policy.
  • Bring your own storage device or have a "cloud" account ready to save your work.
