Student Computer Recommendations
The move to remote learning has highlighted the need to provide basic computer recommendations to Rutgers students. Without the right technology, students may not be able to participate fully in their coursework, whether doing so remotely or otherwise. As part of the response to COVID-19, the following technology recommendations have been developed for Rutgers students:

Technology Resource Centers
More than ‘computer labs’ – we are committed to delivering modern facilities with all the technology students need. To deliver on this commitment we’ve moved past rooms with computers in them or ‘computer labs’ and instead deliver Technology Resource Centers. Across our TRCs you’ll find resources to help you 3D print, print posters, scan to email, photocopy, and much more. In addition we’ve designed the TRCs with space to bring your own device along with space and equipment to facilitate collaboration in groups.
