SPH Facilities/Building Access

Computer Labs

The School of Public Health operates one computer lab. The lab is located in the SPHPI building at 1603 West Taylor Street. This lab is in the SPH Paul Q. Peterson Study Center (SPHPI 178) and has 17 hard-wired terminals and a high capacity printer.

The computers in the lab are connected to the UIC ACCC’s local area network via ethernet connection. This connection provides a wide variety of software, and email and Internet access. A validated UIC identification card is needed to enter the SPH after normal business hours and on weekends. The lab is available for public use when not being used by a class.

Paul Q. Peterson Study Center

The School of Public Health Paul Q. Peterson Study Center, located on the first floor of the SPHPI Building, offers a quiet study area with tables and chairs for student use. Students will have access to this area during all hours that the building is open and students who sign up for after-hour entry into the building will also be able to use the Study Center and its computers. The Study Center is located immediately adjacent to one of the building’s two computer labs with seventeen workstations.

Student Lounges and Additional Study Areas

In SPHPI, the Alan W. Donaldson Student Lounge (194), a café (110), a vending machine area (112) and a parenting room (138), are located on the first floor. Two group study rooms (134 and 142) and four smaller interview rooms ( 105, 107, and 130) are also located on the first floor. Common areas are also located on floors six, seven and eight of SPHPI.

Building Access

The 1603 West Taylor Street Building is open from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. After-hour access to both buildings will be by key-card only.

Newly matriculating students in the Fall term have their access requested automatically. The process usually takes 1-2 weeks to complete after the start of the term. Please note that a valid I-Card is required for access.

For students who have an immediate need for after-hour access or continuing students who are having access issues, please contact Linda Johnson, SPH Registrar for assistance.  You will need to fill out the Building Access Form and submit it to her in the SPH Office of Student Affairs, Room 181 SPHPI.
