The Language Acquisition Center (LAC)

Helping Students Be Successful Using Today's Technologies!

The Language Acquisition Center (LAC) is dedicated to helping students succeed as they seek to master languages other than their own. This newly remodeled multipurpose computer lab serves the entire UTA community with two main rooms, an extensive catalogue of resources, and a drive to reach out to the community.

Our main computer room in Trimble Hall 307 contains 36 iMac computers and 1 instructor iMac, a projector, and whiteboard. The desks are arranged for the classroom but are also separate booths with sound barriers so that students can more clearly record assignments and tests as part of their language coursework.

Finally, the LAC has an extensive collection of analog and digital media, as well as course-related software and self-study software. These materials can be checked out with a UTA ID but can only be removed from the LAC by faculty members. In addition to these materials, the LAC has all of the equipment students and faculty members will need to study the materials.

For more information about the LAC, to schedule an event, to request additional software or materials, or to provide any feedback, please contact MODLITSupport.

LAC Hours for the Fall and Spring are 8:00am-5:00pm.


Campus printing is on a pay-as-you-go basis. MavMoney is used as payment for printing. Students, faculty, and staff will be able to buy printing for a low per-page cost. For more information about how MavMoney works please visit their website.

Pharos Printing (Pay-As-You-Go) is designed to provide students with an easy method to obtain printouts as required for their academic pursuits while still maintaining good conservation of printing supplies.

Printing has been priced to cover the cost of printing supplies (Paper, Toner, Ink), printer repair and regular equipment replacement. The cost of labor is NOT included.

Helpful Tips

  • You are not charged for your print jobs until you swipe your Mav Express card and click Print to release the print jobs to the printers. If you do not release your print jobs, the jobs will be deleted automatically after two hours without any charges occurring to your account.
  • Duplex printing, or printing on both sides of a page, is an available option.
  • Instead of printing a hard copy, files can be saved your J-drive. J-drive can be accessed both on-campus and off-campus. In addition to J-drive, you can also save files to removable media. For example, a CD-RW disc and/or thumb/jump drive. All of the Library and OIT public PCs have both CD-RW drives and USB ports that support flash drives (a.k.a. jump or thumb drives).
