Computing Resources in the 24/7 area

Ten of the Matas 24/7 area computers host software provided by the School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine for after hours use. When the library is closed, the after-hours area is entered by swiping your Tulane University ID card at the controlled access door in the 2nd floor hallway nearest Charity Hospital.

Students that have an ID card which does not have swipe access enabled can get it keyed at the security checkpoint in the School of Medicine lobby - 1430 Tulane Avenue.
