Imaging & Computing Center

The Imaging and Computing Center occupies the ground floor of Coram library. It is a general-purpose computing facility with an emphasis on 3-D technologies and digital fabrication. Its resources are available to support the curricular and scholarly work of the Bates faculty and students. Our support ranges from individual and small group consultation, to in-class workshops, to collaborating on research projects with faculty.

Its facilities include several 2D and 3D printers, computing resources ranging from Raspberry Pis to high-performance computing systems, various types of portable equipment, flexible collaboration spaces for small group work, as well as a 20-seat computer lab.

    • The Computer Room: The Computer Room workstations give users the tools to process and visualize data and to manipulate and present images.
    • The Gallery: The Gallery is an informal space that provides a venue for students and faculty to work in small groups.
    • 3D Printing Vestibule. A reservable 3D printing facility in Coram 103.
    • Coming Soon: XR Lab. A reservable space for developing academic projects using VR/AR resources.

    CRC staff in the Imaging Center work a standard day and are normally available by appointment between 8:30 and 4:30, or during our regular drop-in consultation hours held throughout the academic year. Of course, they can also be contacted via email or phone. Please see our Staff Page for contact information.
