Creating an Account

labaccountsLab accounts can be created by presenting your Student ID or a picture ID to a lab consultant at the Front Desk.Accounts are created automatically for students who are enrolled in a class that is using the labs for the quarter. Login directions are provided by the Front Desk Consultants and are available on each computer screen.

Your login ID is the first letter of your first and last name combined with the last six numbers of your UCLA University ID number. For example, Joe Bruin with Student ID 123456789 will become JB456789. Your temporary password is joebruin. You will be prompted to change your password upon logging in the first time.

Forgotten passwords can be reset by any Front Desk Consultant. Lab accounts must be renewed every quarter. Any print credit from a previous quarter can be transferred by notifying a consultant. For a description of our print costs, click here.
