Cornell Information Technology Home Page

The "Computing at Cornell" site contains information on all aspects of computing on campus, from account information and network status to technical support and facility information.

The CIT Help Desk site contains troubleshooting guides, network information, virus information, and a variety of other references for computer users at Cornell.

Academic Technology Services, part of Cornell Information Technologies, administers eight public labs on campus. These vary in size, software offerings, and hours of operation. Please refer to ATS web resources for the most up-to-date information on these sites and other related inquiries.

Personal Computers

The Department of Computer Science at Cornell does not offer advice concerning the purchase of PC's or other computing platforms. Our curriculum is designed around on-campus laboratory and public computing facilities. While we acknowledge that owning a personal computer can be very beneficial for any student, we prefer not to get into the business of recommending specific platforms or configurations for students at Cornell. The Graduate School of Management at Cornell has created web pages to help business school students understand what kind of computer they need to have at school: JGSM Computer Requirements.
