Open Labs

Harper has two large open labs at the main campus in Buildings Y and I that are available seven days a week. The Harper College Learning and Career Center (LCC)  in Prospect Heights has one large open lab that is available Monday through Thursday. All three labs are staffed to assist students with logging on and off, accessing specific programs and printing their work.
