Computing is an integral part of modern Biostatistics and students have access to all University computing resources which create a vast and diverse computing environment.
Biostatistics Computing Facilities
The Statistics Computing Facility (part of the Department of Statistics) provides biostatistics students with an environment tailored for statistical computing. The core to the Statistics facility is a cluster of workstations producing a state-of-the-art UNIX computing environment, equipped with statistical computing software such as SAS, S, GLIM, FORTRAN and many subroutine libraries as well as the necessary printers, servers and disk storage. All Biostatistics students may open accounts; request an account at the SCF. For more information about this facility check the Statistical Computing Facility website.
Biostatistics Student Lounge
114 Haviland is the Biostatistics Student Working Lounge equipped with wireless internet access for use with personal laptop (check the Airbears Website for wireless info). The room is outfitted with comfy chairs, small couches, conference table, water cooler, a small refrigerator and a coffee maker. Also, day-lockers are provided for students to secure laptops or other valuables. Students must bring their own locks to use. We do not encourage leaving items over-night.
School of Public Health Facilities
Also available is the joint School of Public Health/School of Social Welfare computing facility which is comprised of PCs. Ten of these machines are available in Room 340B Haviland and the machines in the instructional laboratory in Room 340A are available during non-teaching hours.
