The cITy TECH Center provides over 300 workstations where students can work on assignments, check email, and use software packages needed for class.

This new facility is sectioned into General Computing Areas, technology-enabled Student Training Centers (STC), Media Study Rooms, and two-person Study Rooms.  The three STC labs extends the General Computing Area when classes are not in session.  The ten Media Study Rooms can each accommodate up to six students for collaboration purposes and has dual flat panel displays, white boards, and laptop connectivity.  Laptops are also available for use in these Media Study Rooms.  The two-person Study Rooms are also available students and work well for studying with a friend or working with a tutor.
