COMPUTING RESOURCES

Several University departments maintain a presence in the Duderstadt Center and they collaborate to provide a wide range of computing resources. Over 400 computers are available throughout the building.

The Computer Aided Engineering Network (CAEN) provides computers at many locations in the Duderstadt Center offering a broad library of software that is available to all University of Michigan students, faculty and staff. All CAEN computers are dual-boot, offering the option to use either the Microsoft Windows or Red Hat Linux operating systems. All visitors to the Duderstadt Center may also connect their laptops to the Internet via CAEN's encrypted wireless network. For assistance with accessing these services, visit the CAEN Hotline.

The GroundWorks Media Conversion Facility, a service of the Digital Media Commons, provides equipment to convert between many popular audio, video, data storage, and print media formats. Available on a walk in, self-serve basis are Mac OSX and Microsoft Windows computers, flatbed scanners, graphics tablets, video editing workstations, and audio recording components. A large-format color printing service is also available. GroundWorks is located on the first floor of the Duderstadt Center.

The Art, Architecture & Engineering Library offers many publicly accessible Microsoft Windows workstations for guests to access the Library's extensive online services. U-M Information and Technology Services (ITS) also provides many "walk-up" Mac OSX workstations in the Duderstadt Center Atrium for easy Internet access.

The Duderstadt Center provides University students, faculty and staff with 24 hour access to most computing services, seven days a week (see Building Hours for exceptions).
