RUWireless provides the Rutgers University community with wireless network access in many areas of all three Rutgers University campuses. All Rutgers University students, staff, and faculty, as well as sponsored guests, are able to use the RUWireless system in the many community spaces, dorms, and departmental buildings where it is available. Separate registration is not required, only a valid NetID and password are needed for access.
Faculty and staff who are listed in the Rutgers University Online Directory may make an account on the Unix-based Research Computing Initiative (RCI) system.
Remote drive mapping is designed to make managing file space on RCI and Eden as convenient as possible. This service utilizes Samba, a program installed on the RCI and Eden central servers. With this setup no changes need to be made to a local desktop computer. Once connected your web space will appear as an assigned drive letter, the files will then be just as easy to change as if they were located on your own hard drive.
Departmental accounts on RCI are available for departments to conduct University business. Departmental accounts provide a constant address for email, web pages, and other needs and allow the staff of a department to work on these projects together. Although these accounts often represent University departments, it is possible to get a departmental account for projects within a department, or for University-related units or organizations other than official University departments. (Note: Central email services are migrating to Rutgers Connect, and email services on all RCI accounts are expected to be decommissioned during the Spring semester of 2017.)
Google+ is a social networking site developed by Google that debuted in 2011.
Rutgers IM is an open-source Instant Messaging (IM) service that provides secure, encrypted communications with other users logged into the Rutgers central IM server, making it more appropriate for sending sensitive information than standard Instant Messenger services.
The OIT computer labs offer students, faculty, and staff access to computers, laser printers, class software, and computer classroom space. There are over 15 computer labs across the four New Brunswick/Piscataway campuses, providing nearly 1000 workstations and over 40 printers.
