# CSEL: The Computer Science Education Lab
The CSEL is located in [ECCS 112 and ECCS
128](http://www.colorado.edu/campusmap/map.html?bldg=EC). Your Buff
OneCard is requred for access to the lab. Faculty, staff, and students
(either in the CS department or enrolled in a [CSCI
course](http://www.colorado.edu/cs/computer-science-course-catalog)
should have access to the CSEL resources.
Please email [help@csel.cs.colorado.edu][help] for help, questions, or
comments.
**NB:** All general purpose machines (PCs and remote access) use NFS
home directories, so your data is persistent and shared across all of
the CSEL systems. If you are running an IO-bound job, consider using the
shared scratch space mounted on `/local`.
## PCs in the lab
The are a number of PCs available for academic use. The current specs
are:

If you need a custom image for special settings, preferred Linux
distribution, etc, please [send us an email][help].
### nVidia ``Graphcis'' Machine

### OpenVPN
You can get access to the campus (and CSEL) networks using OpenVPN. Note
that [OIT provides
VPN](http://www.colorado.edu/oit/services/network-internet-services/vpn)
services, but you may prefer OpenVPN.
See
[openvpn.md](https://git.cs.colorado.edu/csel/www/blob/master/openvpn.md)
for details.
## GitLab
We have a [GitLab](https://www.gitlab.com) server located at
https://git.cs.colorado.edu. You can access it using your Identikey

## Pinter
There's a printer in the lab. Feel free to print. Don't waste paper.
## Websites
You have a student website hosted at
[csel.cs.colorado.edu/~identikey](https://csel.cs.colorado.edu/#). This
site can be located under either `~/public_html` or `~/.www`. If you are
having trouble, make sure the web server has permission to read this
directory.
$ chmod o+x ~
$ chmod o+rx ~/.www
## Software
In addition to the typical software available on the CSEL systems, the
PCs and remote access servers also have
[MATLAB](http://www.mathworks.com/products/matlab/) installed.
We also have the following academic licenses:
