Undergraduate Students: Resident Computer Consultants

Resident Computer Consultants (RCCs) are available to support their peers on many aspects of computing. Each undergraduate residence has one or more RCCs who are part of house staff. Get to know your RCC.

Peer Technology Specialists (PTSs) are available at The Hub at Lathrop to help Stanford graduate students on aspects of computing. We can help with computer related problems, graduate residential network connections, and residence computer clusters.
