College of Architecture Open Access Computers

The College provides a handful of open access computers located throughout Langford – primarily in the Technical Reference Center (TRC) and in the classroom/lab in A347. The software included on these computers is listed in the table below, along with additional information, such as where you can source the software for personal use on your own laptop.

University Open Access Labs

The Open Access Computer Labs (OAL), a resource provided by Texas A&M Information Technology, provide a wide range of computers, software, scanners and printing – available up to 24 hours per day across campus. There are 18 different labs located across campus, and a wide variety of software is provided. The table below cross-references the software that is available on the College open access computers, and whether it also exists on the OAL computers (the column headed Available in OAL).

Virtual OAL

Additionally, the computer image and all software provided by the OAL computers is available to students as a virtual machine accessible from your personal computer. To login to a Virtual OAL computer, just visit voal.tamu.edu in your browser.
