We provide an open computer lab to the public at no cost. This service allows members of the community to have access to online job searches, personal emails, networking, and more. Regular hours of operation are from 8:30am to 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday. Lab hours are subject to change. The lab may be closed for classes, holidays, staff meetings, or other events.
We strive to bring a fun and safe environment to the children and families of the southside community. In addition to our ongoing events, we have several hallmark events each year:
- Ghosts at Garfield - Late October
- Spring Fling at Garfield - June
Come join us and see all the exciting things happening at MSUB Extended Campus at the Garfield Center.
Garfield Community Literacy Center Project
Since July 2011 MSU Billings Extended Campus in partnership with the College of Education has been developing a neighborhood-based literacy center at the Garfield Center. Increased and improved literacy services are needed to assist MSUB in delivering education and workforce training to neighborhood residents. This project is undertaken with the support of the Montana Campus Compact which has provided MSUB with AmeriCorps VISTAs to assist with securing resources for the center and implementing literacy activities with College of Education faculty and students.
Students who take and finish courses at the Garfield Community Resource Center will receive a MSU Billings Certificate of Completion at the end of each course.
Enrollment in computer courses is limited to 14 students. Many of the other courses offered throughout the year also have limtis. We encourage all students to ask about any upcoming courses.
Students are required to register and provide payment before the start of the course.
