Information Technology and Computing Resources

At Rutgers University, information technology is used in a variety of ways to enhance the student experience both inside and outside of the classroom. Students are provided with convenient access to the Internet, email, computer labs, and web page hosting capabilities, as well as numerous online services through the myRutgers portal. There is an extensive computing environment ranging from a vast data network connecting hundreds of buildings, to multi- user systems and servers, to hundreds of microcomputers spanning the campuses in public and department labs.

Staying connected is a key theme at Rutgers, thus the residence halls are wired with high-speed ethernet connections. Internet access is available through the numerous public access computer labs and in some of the classrooms. There are a growing number of wireless locations including libraries, student centers, and some academic buildings.

Providing a safe and secure technology environment is important, thus Rutgers provides students with free virus protection software and automated update capabilities. There is also an Acceptable Use Policy for Computing and Information Technologywhich outlines appropriate use and guidelines.

Through an individual NetID, students are provided with access to many services including email, computing labs, library databases, and the Internet, as well as the myRutgers portal. myRutgers is a personal, customizable, web-based information portal that makes campus services and information both faster and easier to find and manage. For example, students can review their financial aid, register for classes, pay bills, check grades, review upcoming events, and much more.

Students have easy access to support and training. There are fully staffed help desks that provide walk-in, telephone, and online support services. Students can also take advantage of a variety of free, hands-on training opportunities to enhance their computer knowledge and learn new applications.
