Setting up & using the Calipari Room

The Calipari Room will be open and cleared of students when you arrive for your session. An IT Computer Classrooms consultant will be available to answer any questions.  To turn on the ceiling-mounted projector, point the remote at the front of the projector and hold down the power button until you see/hear the projector switch on.  Instructors and students should log into workstations using their own IT NetID and password. Be sure Domain is set to UMASS.EDU. If there are problems with logins, please see the IT consultant in Calipari or ask at the LC Desk.

If you encounter any problems while using the Calipari Room, the IT student consultant in the room or at the LC Desk can help.
