We are here to help you, so If you are unfamiliar with computers or feel uncomfortable using them, please come by; our friendly and patient staff will be more than happy to be of assistance.

When you arrive at the door, you will be asked for your student ID #. Only students currently enrolled at GCC may use the English Lab.

The Lab is equipped with PCs that have a standard installation of the following software:
