The Third North STC houses gaming consoles and VR capabilities that students can use for development, demonstrations, or recreation.

If you are interested in using the VR machines for development, digital sculpting, or recreation, please make a reservation in advance or fill out a walk-in form upon arrival.
The entire Third North STC is accessible via the elevator at the 12th street entrance (across from the Third North Residence Hall dining hall).
The STCs hold semesterly events and workshops built around enhancing student learning through emerging technology. Past workshops and events include gaming tournaments, working with Unity in VR, and more. All events are open to current degree-seeking students, with specific events also open to faculty, staff, and alumni. See the NYU IT Training and Events page for offerings, when available.
