In addition to the specialized equipment the different research groups possess, additional departmental facilities are available for use by physics students. These include computers, a machine shop, an observatory, and the departmental library. Any physics student may use the department's cluster of LINUX and UNIX computers. General access is provided by PCs or Macintoshes. One should inquire either in the departmental office or with the department's computing system manager to determine what is currently available for use.
