At IU, what are the STCs (computing labs)?

At Indiana University, "STC" refers to a Student Technology Center (computer lab). UITS provides Student Technology Centers (STCs) on all eight campuses. These are in addition to computer labs provided by individual academic departments.

These facilities are intended to provide students with a uniform computing experience and a common software selection across each IU campus, providing all IU students with easy access to the full range of enterprise-sponsored software titles, regardless of their home campus.

The STCs offer a variety of settings including 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.

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.

For information on software currently available in the STCs on various campuses, see Software Published to STC - Windows and Software Published to STC - Mac.
