LabCheck Instructions


These instructions are for Engineering courses which have been provisioned for remote access to computer labs.

Course instructors: 

  • Please follow this guide to verify all of your course staff are in the course staff AD group: Instructor Tools
    • Membership in this course staff group enables remote access to the provisioned lab(s).
    • All students enrolled in the course will have the same remote access. For un-enrolled students, graders, auditors, etc. see the linked article above.


  • Depending on how your course is structured, you may want to assign students/groups to numbered workstations
  • If the lab is configured for a Hybrid setup (allowing both remote and in-person logins), it is very easy for a remote user to be kicked off of a computer by an in-person user. If running at or near the lab's capacity, please make sure to structure and moderate student usage of the computers.


  • Log in to the LabCheck application.

  • Select a building to view labs and their current availability (example below).
