Using Laptops on Hawknet at the Watsonville Center

Can I store my files on the computers in the WCTC and in student classroom labs?

No, your work will be deleted from your computer when you log off or restart. You must store your work on removable media. Please note that not all lab computers have the same storage devices. We highly recommend USB thumb drives. USB thumb drives can be used on all computers in the WCTC, ILC and on student classroom lab computers.

How do I pay for printing at the Watsonville CTC?

  • You will need your student ID number to deposit money in print account
  • Cost is $ .10 a page for black and white, $ .25 a page for color in Watsonville.
  • Money can be deposited into a pay station located in the Library, the Aptos CTC or in the Watsonville CTC - room A310, or the ILC (A210).

  • There are no refunds, any monies in your print account will roll over to the next semester.

A dialog box will come up showing how many pages you will print and what the cost of the print job is. Once you click on "Accept" you are responsible for the cost of the print job.
