Public Computing

Student using computer lab

Computer and media labs are intended for use by classes and any Brandeis community member needing a public computer. In addition to the standard productivity packages, we install specialized software, which varies from room to room and semester to semester.

Located on Farber 3,  Sound & Image Media Studios (SIMS) provides all members of the Brandeis community with training and support for project work in video production, audio production, digital photography, graphic design and animation.

To reserve a computer classroom for a class or inquire about availability, contact clusters@brandeis.edu.

To request new software (or new versions of software), contact clusters@brandeis.edu. Please note that you must request software for each semester it is required; software is not automatically installed from year to year.
