At IU, what are the STCs (computing labs)?At Indiana University, "STC" refers to a Student Technology Center (computing lab). These facilities are intended to provide students with a uniform computing experience and a common software selection across each IU campus. Beginning with the 2013-14 academic year, the service extends beyond the boundaries of IUB and IUPUI to include most IU campuses, so that all IU students have easy access to the full range of enterprise-sponsored software titles.
The Student Technology Centers have long been a fixture on the Bloomington and Indianapolis campuses of Indiana University. These state-of-the-art facilities offer a variety of settings with classrooms, individual study areas, and collaborative spaces for group work, with ample access to both Wi-Fi and power for those who prefer to bring their own devices. All STCs are equipped with either Windows or Macintosh workstations, and many offer thin-client access to IUanyWare applications as well as easy access to a wide variety of services, including large-format printing and high-performance multimedia services. Based out of the Information Common of the Wells Library in Bloomington and the ICTC in Indianapolis, the Technology Centers Consulting group provides hands-on support 24/7 whenever classes are in session.
Additional software is deployed on a campus-by-campus or site-by-site basis, determined by the needs of each campus and their various academic departments. These existing software lists closely match what is available on each UITS-managed campus.
