The Midtown Computer Center can be found on the main level of the Ruth Haas Library. Both offer approximately 40 to 60 IBM desktops computers in each facility. These facilities support a variety of software packages for student convenience including: Microsoft Office, Visual Studio, Netscape, Internet Explorer, and various other class specific applications. These facilities also support specialized software on various machines per academic requirements and are equipped with laser printers in each facility. Each computer center is also equipped with one or more group workstations, where those students working on group projects may do so more comfortably in the designated areas, and a graphic station, which offers QuarkXPress, OmniPage Pro and Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and Acrobat.

The machines in the computer centers are connected to the university's network, which allows data and applications to be shared as well as provides access to the various file servers and/or timesharing systems throughout the campus. All full-time, part-time, and graduate students must have a valid WCSU ID to use the computer facilities at Western. The computer centers are staffed with student lab assistants during operational hours, which are posted each semester, intersession, and break. The lab assistants' main responsibility is to monitor the facilities, however, they may provide individual assistance based on their individual knowledge. Students needing extensive help should visit the Student Technology Training Center.
