There are two student computer labs, one in 404 Rasmuson and another 110 Moore-Bartlett-Skarland. There's also the Nook, in Bunnell 319, a collaborative space that offers a variety of seating options with power outlets, virtual computer stations, wired and wireless network access for student devices, mobile printing, and conference tables where students can share content on their devices with others on a large screen.

On the Fairbanks campus there are 80 smart rooms (classrooms, auditoriums and lab spaces), furnished with instructional technologies such as in-room computers, digital projectors, DVD playback devices, document cameras and digital monitors. Five of these smart classrooms are equipped with automated lecture capture/recording.
