Center for Research Computing & Data

These research computing and data facilities and personnel provide access to software, consulting, and data-management strategies in addition to high performance computing (HPC) cycles.

The facilities and services are available to faculty, staff and student researchers across the university to add computation, alongside the university’s theoretical and experimental efforts, as a third pathway to discovery. 

Our mission is to strengthen the role of computation at NIU to promote excellence and engagement in scholarship and research. Our primary goal is to provide HPC capabilities to NIU research programs and their partners. An additional goal is to enhance the academic programs with computing and data sciences.
