About Us

CIF is an interesting group of people whose interests and activities are as diverse as our members. While we go back to 1982, we’re just as dedicated to the university community as when we were providing some of the few computing resources on campus. Please visit our website ( to learn more about what we do and apply to be a member! CIF provides several services to the University of Rochester and the community at large, including a computer lab available to all University students with Windows, Mac, and Linux machines and free printing. Members of CIF also gain access to our VM hosting, and our VR headset. Check out our website for more information about CIF, its members, services we offer, and how to get involved. Contact us by sending an email or stop by Anderson 3! By the way, join our discord server to participate in our virtual events!
