Computer Facilities

Rutgers University Computing Services (RUCS) provides extensive centralized and decentralized computing and network services for students, faculty, and staff of all academic and administrative units of the university. In addition to the RUCS facilities, many departments and schools operate computing facilities of various types.

For instructional applications and general student use, a group of Sun computer systems, collectively called "eden," is available. Any registered student can create his or her own account on these systems. These systems run the UNIX operating system and provide electronic mail; access to the Rutgers University data communications network, RUNet; access to the Internet; applications software such as SAS and SPSS; and programming language compilers. Machine-readable data files are available for census data, social science data, and other areas.

For research applications, a second group of Sun computer systems with greater capacity is available.

Public computing facilities are located on each campus. These facilities include Apple Macintosh and DOS/ Windows personal computers and X-terminals. All of the workstations in the hubs are connected to RUNet. Software is available for word processing, spreadsheets, desktop publishing, graphics, statistical analysis, and other applications.
