A new, updated Avery Fisher Center will be opening on the 7th floor of Bobst Library at the beginning of the spring 2017 semester.
NYU has three Student Technology Centers (STCs) that are accessible to students, as well as faculty and staff. The STCs provide access to a variety of technology resources including specialized software, printing, video conferencing, video production suites, group study spaces, and more. The three locations include:
- LaGuardia Co-op (539-541 LaGuardia Place)
The new LaGuardia Co-op is a place meant to foster student collaboration around the use of technology through a variety of services, including video recording booths, group study spaces, a common area equipped with video conferencing technology, a gaming area, and access to computers that include the latest software applications. It is also home to the Campus Coding Collaborative, which focuses on the development of new applications meant to improve the student experience at NYU, as well as host a variety of student events, including hackathons, innovation fairs and workshops relating to the use of technology.
- Kimmel Center Lab (60 Washington Square South, 4th Floor)
- Third Avenue Lab (75 Third Avenue, Level C3)
If you will need to reserve a computer lab as a classroom to use for the entire semester, please contact Marissa Mattes during the course scheduling period.
Gallatin has a student computer lab, located on the 5th floor of 1 Washington Place (Room 526). The lab is open Monday – Friday 8am-10pm. Software includes basic Microsoft Office applications such as Word, Excel, Access, and Powerpoint as well as the Adobe Creative Cloud Suite which includes applications such as Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator. The lab is limited to Gallatin students who must use their netids and passwords to login to the computers.
Printing in NYU Computer Labs
Students and faculty are given a print quota each semester to use in all NYU computer labs. This includes the Gallatin computer lab.
While color printing is not available at the Gallatin computer lab, students needing to print in color can use the other NYU facilities.
You can find information on print quotas for students and faculty here:
LaGuardia Studio (for Printing)
NYU’s LaGuardia Studio provides services for NYU students to create wide-format and 3D prints as well as 3D scans. This resource is useful to students interested in photography, fine arts, or architecture/architectural design. Gallatin is allocated a limited grant budget for each academic year. The grant can cover up to 90% of a student’s project.

For more information about funding for the LaGuardia Studio, please contact Marissa Mattes.
Please note that students should not make any payments to the Studio before meeting with Marissa about a grant check as Gallatin is unable to reimburse students for money paid directly to the Studio.
NYU’s instructional technologists collaborate with schools, departments and faculty to enhance, design or redesign courses by integrating cutting-edge technology. For more information about ITS, please visit:
