Research Facilities

Students use the research lounge for research, collaboration, and even the occasional nap.
Students use the research lounge for research, collaboration, and even the occasional nap.

Faculty and student research is supported by access to sophisticated computing facilities and resources. This begins with the department’s “research lounge” in McGregory Hall, a flexible and comfortable hub for research activity in the summer and the center of student activity during the semester. The lounge is adjacent to the department’s machine room, which houses the computational equipment used in research by faculty and students.
