  • The OIT Computer Labs have a wide selection of software available on our computers so that lab patrons can meet their varying computing needs.

  • A mailing list is a means to addressing an entire group of pre-designated individuals by specifying only one address to electronic mail software. This is a convenience for contacting groups with whom one corresponds frequently, and is also useful for sharing information among people with common interests.

  • Rutgers supports a myriad of mobile applications. It is possible to setup your school email on the iPhone, iPod, iPad and Android devices. Similarly you can also use ScarletMail on your phone to access your mail, docs, and calendar. 

  • All faculty, staff, and students are assigned a Rutgers unique identifier known as a NetID, comprised of initials and a unique number (e.g. jqs23). In order to access many of the electronic services available to you at Rutgers, you need to activate your Rutgers NetID.

  • There are two major tools available associated with NetID password changes.

  • The Office of Information Technology has implemented a printing conservation program at the campus computing labs that has been in effect since August 2007. Since our focus is to concentrate on allowing students to continue to satisfy their academic printing needs, the printing limit that has been put into place has been based on the 2007 survey taken by University students.. Our goal is to improve the efficiency of our computer centers by eliminating unnecessary waste without disturbing the needs of the majority of the student and faculty bodies.

  • Printing is provided as a limited service to all lab patrons at the OIT Computer Labs. Print jobs must be released by the patron via the print release stations located in each computing center. An RU Connection Card (RU ID card) is required to release print jobs. Manual feeding of special paper is not allowed.

    There will be no charge for the first $30 of printing that each individual person releases during every six month printing period (January-June; July-December). The $30 at no-charge allocation is the same for all students, independent of the details of their academic and university arrangements (number of credits, part-time vs full-time, number of semesters enrolled, commuter vs resident, school, major, course load, research needs etc.).  Rates for printing are as follows:

    • $.04 per sheet for black and white printing
    • $.25 per sheet for color printing*

    Please note that $30 at no charge is equivalent to:

    • 750 sheets in black and white, OR
    • 120 sheets in color, OR
    • any combination thereof*

    Remember, single-sided and double-sided sheets have the same rates, so everyone is encouraged to always print double-sided, which is the default setting on most lab computers.

  • Users with accounts on the RCI and Eden computing systems may maintain a personal website. This document will give basic instructions on how to create a website and transfer it to the web.

  • 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.

  • The Rutgers University Office of Information Technology Residential Networking group provides residence hall students with high speed Ethernet connections. The residential network allows students to easily access University resources such as web pages and class schedules. 

  • 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.

  • Stay connected with the new Rutgers mobile application, available for the iPhone, iPod, and iPad as well as Android phones and tablets. Access the University on the go: check campus bus times, dining hall menus, myRutgers, and more. Customize channels and visit Rutgers mobile web sites that work great whether you're on cellular or RUWireless.

  • 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.

  • ScarletApps is the Rutgers implementation of Google Apps for Education. Rutgers has partnered with Google to provide these resources to the Rutgers community.

    The ScarletApps suite includes the core Google hosted applications; Gmail, Docs, Calendar, Talk, Video and Sites. In addition to the core suite, Google has added dozens of additional apps to the Google Apps for Education program. To view the full list of applications available on ScarleApps and their respective Google Terms of Service, see the Additional Apps page.

  • If a user has already activated their NetID, they may use this tool to activate additional services. You can choose services for which you are eligible, including ScarletApps (Google for Rutgers), or locally provided email and website services.

  • The term "spam" is computer slang for the electronic equivalent of junk mail. Spam floods message boards, newsgroups, mailing lists, and Rutgers e-mail accounts with unwanted, unsolicited, and often repugnant messages--usually advertisements, promotions, or deliberate disruptions. It is also a flagrant violation of membership agreements with most Internet Service Providers. While spam is often identified as "large numbers of messages", even just one unwanted message to someone can be considered spam. The term is attributed to a sketch, performed in the 1970s by the British comedy troupe Monty Python, about a repetitive breakfast menu in which each item has more Spam (the canned meat product) than the previous.

    Spam is a problem for all e-mail users. It has been determined that 80 - 90% of all e-mail coming into the University's central e-mail servers is spam. For example, in July 2007, the New Brunswick faculty/staff e-mail server received 66,088,392 e-mail messages. Of those e-mail messages, 41,264,942 messages we detected as being spam or viruses and were blocked. This is not only a problem at Rutgers. Spamcop.net, a website dedicated to reporting spam worldwide, has estimated that 11.5 spam messages are sent out every second.

  • Eden systems have special accounts for cases where a student organization with multiple people need to share services on one account.

  • The Office of Information Technology Teaching Labs are classroom-sized computer labs located in the main computing centers of each campus. They can be reserved for Rutgers courses or special training sessions for hands-on computer instruction. A variety of departments, instructors, and programs have discovered and successfully utilized the Teaching Labs to modernize instruction methods using applied computer interaction.

  • The University Software Portal is the access point for site licensed and discounted software as well as SSL certificates.

  • The Office of Information Technology, in providing better service to the University community, secures some of its services so they can only be used by computers on the Rutgers Network. That means those services will not be directly available through Internet Service Providers (ISPs) from off-campus, but instead must be accessed through the Rutgers Virtual Private Network (VPN). In addition to configuring VPN client software, VPN users will need to use their Rutgers NetID (username) and passwords.

  • 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.)

  • OIT will provide Emergency NetIDs to employees with Social Security Numbers who need access to electronic services to perform their assigned duties and whose on-boarding process has been delayed.

  • The Office of Information Technology has licensed an enterprise desktop management application.  Departments may take advantage of this free service to manage their desktops.

  • 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.

  • ScarletApps is the Rutgers implementation of Google Apps for Education. Rutgers has partnered with Google to provide these resources to the Rutgers community.

    The ScarletApps suite includes the core Google hosted applications; Gmail, Docs, Calendar, Talk, Video and Sites. In addition to the core suite, Google has added dozens of additional apps to the Google Apps for Education program. To view the full list of applications available on ScarleApps and their respective Google Terms of Service, see the Additional Apps page.

  • The term "spam" is computer slang for the electronic equivalent of junk mail. Spam floods message boards, newsgroups, mailing lists, and Rutgers e-mail accounts with unwanted, unsolicited, and often repugnant messages--usually advertisements, promotions, or deliberate disruptions. It is also a flagrant violation of membership agreements with most Internet Service Providers. While spam is often identified as "large numbers of messages", even just one unwanted message to someone can be considered spam. The term is attributed to a sketch, performed in the 1970s by the British comedy troupe Monty Python, about a repetitive breakfast menu in which each item has more Spam (the canned meat product) than the previous.

    Spam is a problem for all e-mail users. It has been determined that 80 - 90% of all e-mail coming into the University's central e-mail servers is spam. For example, in July 2007, the New Brunswick faculty/staff e-mail server received 66,088,392 e-mail messages. Of those e-mail messages, 41,264,942 messages we detected as being spam or viruses and were blocked. This is not only a problem at Rutgers. Spamcop.net, a website dedicated to reporting spam worldwide, has estimated that 11.5 spam messages are sent out every second.

  • 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.

  • 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 Classroom is available to anyone with a ScarletMail account. It is a free suite of productivity tools including Gmail, Drive and Docs.

    Classroom is designed to help teachers create and collect assignments paperless, including time-saving features like the ability to automatically make a copy of a Google Document for each student. It also creates Drive folders for each assignment and for each student to help keep everyone organized.

    Students can keep track of what's due on the Assignments page and begin working with just a click. Teachers can quickly see who has or hasn't completed the work, and provide direct, real-time feedback and grades right in Classroom

  • Google+ is a social networking site developed by Google that debuted in 2011.

  • Accounts on the Office of Information Technology (OIT) faculty/staff systems are reserved for faculty and staff who are affiliated with the University. Guest accounts are available for individuals who are conducting University business and are directly associated with the University, but are not officially on the University's payroll.

  • The OIT Computing Help Desk is dedicated to providing prompt, courteous and effective service to the Rutgers New Brunswick/Piscataway campus and the Rutgers community.

  • The OIT Computer Labs have a wide selection of software available on our computers so that lab patrons can meet their varying computing needs.

  • Rutgers supports a myriad of mobile applications. It is possible to setup your school email on the iPhone, iPod, iPad and Android devices. Similarly you can also use ScarletMail on your phone to access your mail, docs, and calendar. 

  • All faculty, staff, and students are assigned a Rutgers unique identifier known as a NetID, comprised of initials and a unique number (e.g. jqs23). In order to access many of the electronic services available to you at Rutgers, you need to activate your Rutgers NetID.

  • There are two major tools available associated with NetID password changes.

  • The Office of Information Technology has implemented a printing conservation program at the campus computing labs that has been in effect since August 2007. Since our focus is to concentrate on allowing students to continue to satisfy their academic printing needs, the printing limit that has been put into place has been based on the 2007 survey taken by University students.. Our goal is to improve the efficiency of our computer centers by eliminating unnecessary waste without disturbing the needs of the majority of the student and faculty bodies.

  • Printing is provided as a limited service to all lab patrons at the OIT Computer Labs. Print jobs must be released by the patron via the print release stations located in each computing center. An RU Connection Card (RU ID card) is required to release print jobs. Manual feeding of special paper is not allowed.

    There will be no charge for the first $30 of printing that each individual person releases during every six month printing period (January-June; July-December). The $30 at no-charge allocation is the same for all students, independent of the details of their academic and university arrangements (number of credits, part-time vs full-time, number of semesters enrolled, commuter vs resident, school, major, course load, research needs etc.).  Rates for printing are as follows:

    • $.04 per sheet for black and white printing
    • $.25 per sheet for color printing*

    Please note that $30 at no charge is equivalent to:

    • 750 sheets in black and white, OR
    • 120 sheets in color, OR
    • any combination thereof*

    Remember, single-sided and double-sided sheets have the same rates, so everyone is encouraged to always print double-sided, which is the default setting on most lab computers.

  • Users with accounts on the RCI and Eden computing systems may maintain a personal website. This document will give basic instructions on how to create a website and transfer it to the web.

  • 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.

  • RUMail is a centralized, fee-based collaboration service that provides integrated email, calendaring/scheduling, address book, and document services for faculty and staff at Rutgers University. The service supports multiple desktop operating systems and clients, as well as synchronization with mobile devices.

  • 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.

  • Stay connected with the new Rutgers mobile application, available for the iPhone, iPod, and iPad as well as Android phones and tablets.

  • The Office of Information Technology Teaching Labs are classroom-sized computer labs located in the main computing centers of each campus. They can be reserved for Rutgers courses or special training sessions for hands-on computer instruction. A variety of departments, instructors, and programs have discovered and successfully utilized the Teaching Labs to modernize instruction methods using applied computer interaction.

  • The Office of Information Technology, in providing better service to the University community, secures some of its services so they can only be used by computers on the Rutgers Network. That means those services will not be directly available through Internet Service Providers (ISPs) from off-campus, but instead must be accessed through the Rutgers Virtual Private Network (VPN). In addition to configuring VPN client software, VPN users will need to use their Rutgers NetID (username) and passwords.
