Learning Lab @ Rolfe

Rolfe Hall, UCLA








The Learning Lab @ Rolfe supports undergraduate learning and success in the Humanities through an adaptable and technology enhanced environment.  We offer on-demand technical support to ensure the smooth operation of technology so instructors can focus on teaching, and students on learning. 

Located in Rolfe Hall 2118, the Learning Lab is equipped with 30 MacBooks, an instructor station connected to a digital projection system, and two mobile display carts. Regular hours are Monday-Friday: 9am-5pm. The lab is closed on all academic holidays.

Open hours are indicated on our calendar. Students who need to take an exam, use a laptop, need Respondus support on their computers, or who need a place to study can show up during these hours without making a reservation.


A color printer is available, but use of the printer is limited to students who are enrolled in the classes that take place in the lab. However, scanning via flash drive is available for all faculty and students.
