The Student Directory is now available online! You can see it at http://ck.kentlaw.edu/directory/index.html. The Directory includes everyone that did not submit a privacy form to the Registrar. Also, it is currently only available within the building to protect your privacy.

The CLC has moved its main office to room 775 and expanded our hours: 
  Monday - Thursday 8:30 AM - 6 PM
Friday 8:30 AM - 5 PM
When you have a question or need help, please email us at HELPDESK. HELPDESK is your main link to computer support. When your message is received, one of our Customer Service staff members will respond to you at their earliest convenience. If your email is inaccessible, you can also reach us at 6-5300, or stopping by room 775.

Lab 545
Due to a delay in the delivery of the furniture for Lab 545, the opening date has been postponed until late November, 1998, or mid December, 1998.


  • Please take all problem pages to Theda Mickey, Room 711. NO credit will be issued without presenting the pages in question.
  • NO credits will be issued back to accounts for Lexis or Westlaw documents, regardless of low toner or incomplete jobs.

Printing on KENTNET:
The principle printers in the KENTNET system are Hewlett-Packard LaserJet 8000N Printers. There is one printer in each lab, which is set up as the default printer when you sign on in that lab.

How to Use the Printers
From your application (for instance, WordPerfect), choose PRINT. Once you have sent a job to the printer, you can release it at the print queue station next to the printer.

  1. Press F1 for the Queue Manager.
  2. Select your Print Job using the Arrow Keys.
  3. Press H to release the Job.
  4. Press Esc to Return to the Queue Screen.
Individual Student Printing Accounts
  • Each student receives 400 pages of printing per semester.  Any printing past 400 pages will be charged to your student printing account at 5¢ per page.
  • You must settle your student account with the BURSAR'S OFFICE before receiving your 400 page allotment for the following semester.  Students with outstanding balances will have their Kentnet accounts deactivated until the balance is paid.
  • You may ONLY view your page balance through the KENTNET menu at STUDENT SERVICES | CENTER FOR LAW AND COMPUTERS | PRINTER ACCOUNT BALANCE.  The balance on the print server next to the printer is NOT your accurate balance.
  • If you have printed work for a faculty member, print out a detailed balance and have the faculty member sign for their pages.  Present the signed balance sheet to the HELPDESK in the Center for Law and Computers (Room 775).  Your print account will be credited  accordingly.
  • LEXIS-NEXIS, WESTLAW, and eLOISe printing are automatically directed to the Document Center printer.  Payment for Document Center printouts is required when you pick them up.
  • Graduating students with a delinquent printing balance will NOT receive their diplomas until the accounts are paid in full.
Please report any problems with printers or printing by E-mail to HELPDESK.

 Answers to some of the most commonly asked questions of the CLC:

Q: What is the URL for Chicago-Kent's internal web page?

A: It's http://ck.kentlaw.edu. You can easily access this site either through netscape here at school or at home through CK-Online (not through private ISPs) by typing in ck in your browser's netsite field. 

1998-1999 Academic Calendar

The 1998-1999 Academic Calendar has been update and is available online.

E-Mail Stations 

The E-Mail stations located throughout the building are intended to allow students convenient and quick access to E-Mail and to the Record. Please be considerate to your fellow students when using these stations. If you want to compose many or long E-Mails, or browse the Internet at length, please use one of the computer labs in the library. Thank you for your cooperation.

FYI: Network Maintenance

Regular general maintenance of the network is necessary to ensure greater performance, both in terms of speed and the prevention of any serious problems. To achieve these goals, the Center for Law and Computers will periodically take down the network to perform this maintenance. We've scheduled the maintenance on a monthly basis, for only 1.5 hours on days and at times to inconvenience the least amount of users. 

Here are the dates that we will be taking the network down. On these days, the network will not be available between 5:30am and 7:00am.
