The Office of Student Computing Resources (OSCR) Gear-to-Go Center is increasingly popular. Students, faculty, and staff can check out cameras and audio equipment for free, and demand can be high.

Fortunately OSCR has regularly scheduled refreshes to keep its equipment up to date, and this summer was able to purchase new gear. Since the old equipment was still in excellent working order, the additional gear expands Gear-to-Go’s offerings and will help ensure equipment is available during peak use times, such as before semester final projects are due.

In the heart of downtown Tucson, stands the distinctive Roy Place Building, a structure which is not only named in honor of Tucson’s most no­table architect, but now also boasts the Univer­sity’s most recent expansion. The UA Downtown facility is a professional work and study environ­ment for faculty, staff, and students of the Col­lege of Architecture and Landscape Architecture (CALA), as well as for those from the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences. Offering two spacious classrooms, UA Downtown is the prod­uct of effective teamwork and renovation.

After a successful 23-year run of reliable service to the University, Student Information Systems (SIS) officially retired on Friday, November 4, 2011.  Once responsible for organizing the operational data behind such services as advising, admissions, student records, and financial aid, SIS has been successfully replaced over the past year by UAccess Student. Since going live in 2010, UAccess Student now provides the ability to fully manage everything in one spot and offers these same SIS services and more, but at a greater level of efficiency.
