Dear native English speakers,
I have a little question.
Is the term "PC corner" used commonly?

The text goes like this:
The terminal also has many examples of things designed for people who cannot reach up very high, such as small children and people in wheelchairs. Such things include drinking fountains, public telephones, vending machines, and a PC corner.

Thanks in advance.

It's not a common term, but based on context, it seems to me to be referring to an area with computers for the people mentioned to use. If I understood correctly, then there's no common term for what they're talking about, anyway.

As Julie says, we can understand from context but this is not a common term. (However if you Google it, it seems it's quite common in non-English-speaking countries.)
The most common term for this in the U.S. is "business center." (At least in hotels.)

Does "business center" mean the place where you can use PCs?

I wouldn't expect to hear it, but if I heard it I'd immediately know what it was.
