Haedong Lounge: The Center for Programming
[ Issue 152 Page 5 ] Wednesday, March 29, 2017, 22:40:55 Kum Seok Nam Staff Reporter snam2015@kaist.ac.kr

The newly built Haedong Lounge has recently been opened for student use at the Information and Electronics Building (E3), a building shared by the School of Electrical Engineering and the School of Computing. Located in the Semiconductor Building (E3-4), this new lounge offers a great environment to collaborate on challenging programming assignments for a wide variety of students and faculty at KAIST.

With two seminar rooms available and many tables oriented around the spacious lounge, the Haedong Lounge facilitates the use of 36 computers in a 280 square yard space. The computers support a dual boot of LINUX (Ubuntu 16.04) and Windows 10, enabling students to access a wide range of software.

The Haedong Lounge has strict guidelines that are enforced to maintain its environment. The lounge is only available for use to undergraduate students and classes that require computers. Furthermore, students wishing to utilize the computers cannot access the lounge computers remotely unless a secure connection is established. Furthermore, computers that must remain powered for extended periods of time must have a memo attached or else they will be turned off. In the case of a security breach or misuse, such as hacking, gaming, and unnecessary resource use, the class professor will be notified and the account will be removed. As the lounge is open 24 hours a day, the last person to leave is also responsible for turning off the lights and checking that the door is closed.

The Haedong Lounge will be a privilege for undergraduate students busy with programming assignments at KAIST; it will be the students’ responsibility to use the available facilities to its full potential and maintain the standards of the establishment.
