New Specially Enhanced Computer Stations

Here at ITS Labs we try to focus on creating a more customer orientated environment in which we can provide the best service to all University of Hawaii students, faculty and staff. To accomplish this we have two accessible computer stations in our general purpose computing labs to accomodate those that are physically impaired. These computer stations have been equipped with special software and motorized adjustable height tables.
