Quinney Computer Lab Helpdesk

For Students

Access to the Lab Computers

Because the Quinney Computer Labs are not a USU open-access lab, access is limited to those students who are part of the Quinney College of Natural Resources. Funding for the labs come from the S.J. and Jessie E. Quinney Foundation and your QCNR class lab fees. The Labs may not be used for commercial, religious, political, funded-research or other illegal purposes. Recreational use is not supported or accommodated but may be tolerated so long as it does not interfere with the management, operation, or availability of lab resources for their intended educational purposes.  

First time login
Enter your login information in the Secure Login area and click the Login button. Your username will always be your campus wide ID (A#). Your password will be your USU secure password. Once logged in you may customize your desktop to meet your needs. When logging out, close your web browser and shut down the computer to protect your identity. 

File storage
You may temporarily store your files directly to your desk top. Excessive file storage, however, will slow down and eventually prohibit your login and operations. We suggest you a) save all files to a removable storage devise, or b) use Box@USU
