The College of Science and Engineering (CSE) provides students various technology resources for academic coursework and academic research.

CSE Labs Accounts

Students currently enrolled in the College of Science and Engineering are eligible for a CSE Labs account.

  1. Review CSE's policy for Acceptable Use of Information Technology Resources.
  2. Request a CSE Labs account.

A CSE Labs account will let you use CSE computer classrooms and labs and access additional CSE technology resources such as CSE software and printing.


Some courses you are taking may be using Gradescope to provide feedback and grades. View getting started resources on the Gradescope self-help guide.


You may use Piazza in some of your courses. Piazza is an intuitive platform for instructors to efficiently manage class Q&A. Students can post questions and collaborate to edit responses to these questions. Your instructor will provide instructions for accessing Piazza if it is required.



Students who have a CSE Labs account are able to print at any CSE computer lab or classroom. Learn more about printing in CSE Labs.


CSE and the University provide discounted or no-cost software to students for academic use. Visit CSE-IT Software for a list of available software.


AppsToGo is the University of Minnesota's application delivery service that allows you to run software without having to install it on your computer. After creating a CSE Labs account, students will have access to CSE software and to CSE Labs desktop computers - in addition to University provided resources - in AppsToGo.
