The McAdams 110A general lab provides both windows and Linux-based systems. The first row of tables are Windows-based systems, rows 2 and 3 are Linux-based. You should be able to access both the building and McAdams 110A using your university ID card 24 hours a day.
A good way to access school systems over the network is via a program called ssh.
For Windows, one SSH client that is recommended by CCIT is called PuTTY and can be downloaded for free from http://www.putty.org
For Linux and Mac systems, ssh should be a built in command, so if you need to ssh, you will open terminal type ssh and then the machine that you are trying to log into. For example: ssh koala10.cs.clemson.edu
If you are off campus, you cannot directly SSH to these machines, you must first do one of two things:
Below are a list of machines that are accessible:

For Windows, another alternative to using SSH is X-Win32 which is a remote Linux desktop. It is available for free through the university, and instructions on downloading it can be found here: https://ccit.clemson.edu/support/faculty-staff/software/individual-licenses/?id=506&l=1
For further instructions on how to actually use X-Win32, please see the following: https://www.cs.clemson.edu/help/xwin32.html
Lastly, you may choose to use VirtualBox instead, which should work on Windows or Mac as an alternative to SSH. More instructions can be found here: https://www.cs.clemson.edu/help/linux-workshop/
