ITS Academic Technology Centers offer specialized and advanced technology resources and assistance for your course-related work and research. These include high-end Macintosh and Windows systems, laser printers, DVD drives and related equipment, a wide variety of up-to-date software, and high-speed connections to the Internet, and NYURoam wireless access. Additional resources at the two large, modern technology centers include flatbed scanners; audio, video, and image editing; web and print publishing; and staff to assist students in the use of the labs and other ITS resources.

ITS' CoLabs are designed for student collaboration, where you can use a public computer or bring your own, and work individually or with others. In addition to NYURoam wireless access, the CoLabs offer public computers (dual-boot Mac and Windows) with web browsers, Microsoft Office software, and high-speed connections to Internet resources; laser printers; and areas for individual and collaborative work.

In addition to the physical locations, ITS now offers a Virtual Computer Lab, available wherever you use your computer; see below for details.
