Lab Software

Waterman Labs offer a variety of software for multiple disciplines. Existing software is routinely updated to currently supported versions, and new software is normally added during intersession breaks.

Please note:

  • Lab users and instructors cannot perform software installations requiring administrator rights.
  • New software that does not require administrator rights (such as "drag and drop" installs) may be downloaded and run by lab users but will be removed upon logout.

If you need additional software installed in the lab, you may make a request via the Waterman Labs Help and Support form.

Terms of Use

As a shared resource, and to ensure a clean, functional, and productive environment, the following Terms of Use apply to all areas of Waterman Computer Labs. Use of the lab implies agreement to these terms.

Before Class/Event

  1. Verify the lab reservation schedule in the EMS Portal to see that your event is properly reserved for the correct time and location.
  2. Check that the software you intend to use is installed and test it in advance to ensure it is working properly and to your expectations.
  3. Test the equipment you intend to use (displays, speakers, microphones, cameras, scanners) and report any malfunctioning equipment to Classroom Technology Services (link to info below).

During Class/Event

  1. Food and drink should not be consumed in the lab.
  2. Whenever possible, doors to the teaching classrooms should be left open. Significant heat may be produced by working computers in an enclosed space. If noise levels during your instruction require you to close the door, ensure it is left open upon exit to allow for temperature regulation.
  3. End your session on time; there may be a reservation for the room immediately proceeding your own.

After Class/Event

  1. Log out of all workstations.
  2. Shut off instructor display, if used.
  3. Return chairs under desks; if additional chairs were brought in, return them to their original location.
  4. Erase marker boards.
  5. Pick up any trash, papers, or other objects left behind and dispose of them in the appropriate waste container.

Failure to abide by the terms of use may result in future lab use being billed, or denial of future reservation requests.

Reservations and Class Booking

Waterman Teaching Labs are reserved through UVM's EMS Portal scheduling utility: 

Room Access

Waterman Teaching Labs are automatically locked and unlocked based on scheduled classes and events in EMS:

  • The main outer door to the 113 suite is scheduled to unlock every weekday for the hours of 7 am-5 pm; this entrance will automatically default to locked on weekends and during holidays/break periods. Exception-scheduling to open this entrance for extended, weekend or holiday hours may be granted by scheduling at least 5 business days in advance of the first event or class date.
  • 113-Q and 113-T will be unlocked according to the event detail given in EMS. Doors should unlock 15 minutes prior to a scheduled event and will auto-lock 15 minutes after the scheduled event (unless another event begins within that time frame).
  • If you have reserved 113-Q or 113-T after 5 pm on a weekday evening, or over the weekend, then the North and South CatCard-enabled Waterman exterior building entrances and the main 113 suite outer door entrance should also automatically unlock as needed to allow access during the time scheduled.

Questions regarding room scheduling and door access should be directed to University Event Services by emailing or phone (802) 656-5665.
