Log Ins

If you are a student, your log in is your Charger ID (it is the first part of your e-mail address, and the same as what you use to log into Angel and into campus wifi). It is normally two or three initials and four digits, and looks something like brg0031 or sus0012. Your password will be your first initial, your last initial, and the last six digits of your A-number. If this sounds new to you, or if you do not recall, but you do know your Banner credentials,  you can use the OIT User Services page to find your Charger ID. 

The above is true for faculty and staff as well. Use the same log-in to e-mail coupled with your first initial, last initial, and last six digits

If you are not a student or faculty or staff, you will need a Guest Account.

Rules & Conduct

  • The Info Arcade computers are primarily for student use to complete assignments. Limit your time to 30 minutes if others are waiting, and refrain from recreational use. The computer stations near the coffee shop are suitable for browsing needs.
  • Be considerate of others.
  • You will not be able to install software on the computers. This includes software bundled with textbooks or downloaded from class websites. Check the software available, because many of the primary software needs have already been met. If there is software absolutely needed for a class but is not offered in one of the labs (not just the info arcade), then have your professor contact the library.
  • No Food. No Drinks. No Tobacco Products (including smokeless).
  • The info arcade is not a quiet study area, but refrain from using cellphones or having loud or extended discussions. Headphones are not provided, but you can bring your own. If others can hear what you hear through your headphones, that is too loud and you will be asked to turn it down.
  • Do not abuse the equipment. Any of it.
  • Any illegal activity (from p2p downloads to surfing questionable sites) will be associated with your account and you will be held responsible. Do not share your account information because this is still held against you.
  • It is your responsiblity to the know the copyright status for any materials printed or copied. By using those services, you assert that you have the right to do so.

Guest Accounts

If you are guest, we offer a guest account at the cost of $50 per three months (for $75, can be upgraded to include circulation rights). Bring a Photo ID. This is not pro-rated, so you are not able to buy in for only a weekend. You may not transfer your guest account to another user. It will be associated with your name and all activity on it will be your responsibility. 

For Lifetime Learners, local high-school users, and others, there are discounted plans for obtaining a card. See the full Obtaining a Card guide to see the various categories. If you are a UAH Alumni, guest access is free! See blog post for more details.
