main lab


We are mostly located in the Science Center, which is also the home for Math & Statistics, Physics, and Chemistry.

Here's a map of our Science Center Hallway, but we also have a teaching lab in Clothier 16, as well as a few faculty in Parrish and the Chemistry side of the SciCenter.

Our space provides many benefits to our students and faculty, including:

  • A teaching lab (The Alden Lab of Computer Science) for classes and student work, which includes 30 workstations running Ubuntu Linux (SciCenter 240)
  • A second teaching lab (SciCen 256), thanks to a gift from Jesse and Maria Aweida '56. We sometimes call this one the bird's nest, since all of the computers in there have bird names (hawk, owl, duck, etc.). This lab has 34 workstations running Ubuntu Linux
  • An overflow lab (SciCenter 238), with 10 workstations, for students to use while the teaching labs are in use
  • A robotics lab, a NLP lab, and a cluster/systems lab for student research
  • A nice big server room for the department's UNIX servers and networking equipment
  • Study alcoves
  • Floor-to-ceiling whiteboards
  • A large seminar room (The Cunniff Seminar Room) with whiteboards and a projector
  • 24-hour access to labs via a card-reader system
  • Over 100,000 ft of CAT6e networking cables
  • All offices and labs on the same floor
  • Proximity to other science departments and Cornell Science Library
