Software available in Labs

All of the computers in all of the labs have Microsoft Office 2021, Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox. They also have Adobe Creative Cloud, Blender, ArcGIS, Maple, SPSS, Mathematica and Minitab. If you need to use a specific program, feel free to contact the TRC Helpdesk and ask about it. We may be able to install the program on the machines for you.

Network Storage

Every student has a 1TB Cloud Drive through Office 365 called OneDrive. To access it, log into the computers in our Computer Labs or Library, go to OneDrive in a browser of your choice, and you will see your personal files and folders. This should be where you save your documents because the machines in the labs and library will delete any and all changes you make to the computer once it has rebooted every night. This includes all documents and settings. Follow this link if you need help with adding files in OneDrive or contact the TRC at 507-537-6111 or


There are printers in all of the computer labs on campus and the Mini-Lab in Common West. There is a Colored Printer located on the main floor of the library. The mini-lab in Commons West has a printer, but students are required to supply their own paper if they want to print there.
