Computer Commons

Fall 2020

The Computer Commons Lab is open in-person to enrolled Yavapai College students for individual coursework during the fall 2020 semester (August 17, 2020 – December 11, 2020). See hours below.

Yavapai College is requiring the use of face coverings on campus and in the Computer Commons.  If a student is seeking an alternative face covering, please follow up with Disability Resources regarding required documentation that will be needed.  No student will be permitted to access the computer lab without a face covering.  Students are also asked to bring their own headphones to the Computer Commons.

Please take time to review the Safety Protocols tab on our YC Reentry Plan website.  

Students will also be asked to perform a daily wellness check before coming to campus AND provide a temperature check at our kiosks at the bottom of building 19 (Prescott) and building L (Verde).  Once you are clear, take the sticker and keep it with you throughout the day as it will allow you access to utilize the Computer Commons lab and other access points on campus.

In-person and phone support hours:

Prescott (Building 19): Monday - Friday: 8am – 5pm
Verde (Building M): Monday 9am - 1pm; Thursday 11am - 3pm

Please call (928) 776-2158 for immediate help during support hours.

If you reach voicemail, please leave a message with your name, phone number and question and we'll call you back as soon as possible. If you do not have access to a computer or internet, please alert your instructor.

The Computer Commons staff welcomes you back!  We look forward to seeing your smiling eyes, since you'll be wearing a face covering.
