These systems are supported through UITS.
The Research Technologies division of UITS offers a wide range of resources and services including access to IU's supercomputers, visualization systems, consulting and support services, and up to 5 TB of file storage space on the Scholarly Data Archive.

All classrooms at IU Southeast feature installed AV equipment. Standard rooms contain a Windows PC, a video projector, a DVD or Blu-Ray player, and either a push-button or touch-screen controller. Some rooms also contain document cameras, SMART Boards or SMART Podiums. In smaller rooms, flat screen TVs may be installed instead of projection. For more information, visit the classroom technology website.
There are a number of classrooms equipped with student PC or MAC workstations. The routine scheduling process through the registrar’s office will be used for scheduling computer-equipped classrooms for semester use. Faculty members who need a facility for only one or two sessions may work out informal exchanges of rooms, but they should attempt to make arrangements as far in advance as possible.
At the discretion of the instructor, students not enrolled in a course may use available work stations in the above rooms.
Student Technology Centers (STCs)
Students will find plentiful public computers located strategically across campus in Student Technology Centers, or STCs. These computers do require an IU username and password for access. Community visitors to the Library may obtain a guest username and password for the duration of their visit. For a directory of locations and hours, visit the technology labs webpage.
UITS, Disability Services, and the Library provide an Adaptive Technology Center (ATC). Located in the Library the ATC is equipped with a variety of equipment to assist people with disabilities in using the full range of technology available to the university community. For more information, visit the Library's adaptive technology webpage.
