Did you know that SINC is an acronym for Students In Need of Computers? The name SINC Site was coined years ago when the first lab opened and historically stood for for Stony Brook Instructional Network Computers.There are now a total of 17 SINC Sites on campus as listed to the left. In addition to the TLT-managed SINC Sites, there are student group study areas known as CoLA's, the Print from Anywhere service, plus other computer labs on campus in the Health Sciences Center and Residential Computing Centers.

Knowledgeable student employees are available to assist users with SINC Site computer and software issues in the Main Library SINC Site (Room S1460), the North Reading Room CoLA (2nd floor) , during open lab hours in other SINC Sites and on our Help Line @ (631) 632-9602.  General SINC Site polices are accessible on this web site:
