The Urbana campus is home to one of the most powerful supercomputers in the world, Blue Waters. Last Friday, the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) hosted an #IllinoisWelcome Tour at the National Petascale Computing Facility (NPCF) in Research Park.
New and returning students, faculty, and staff were invited to take a look at Blue Waters and hear about how people are using supercomputing in their research. I took this opportunity to check it out.
Some students have reported issues getting and staying connected to IllinoisNet wireless in the residence halls.
Request your Illinois Compass 2g course spaces and get trained before the semester starts.
All students, faculty, and staff can now get Microsoft Office 365 for free.
Technology Services has deployed two new wireless networks across campus, IllinoisNet_Start and IllinoisNet_Devices, both of which will make it easier for students, faculty, staff, and visitors to get all of their devices connected to the campus wireless network.
The resources you need to succeed as a new and returning #illini.
High performance computing (HPC) is for humanists, too. And it is about to get easier for Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences (HASS) scholars to use supercomputing resources in their work.
AT&T is retiring Centrex, a communications service used by some departments on campus. Technology Services created a retirement plan to walk you through how to switch to supported services.
Technology Services is upgrading the technology and furniture in several classrooms and labs for the fall semester.
