What is a SINC Site?

SINC Sites (Students In Need of Computers) are public computer labs that allow users to access both Windows & Mac computers. SINC Sites provide printing services, tech support, laptop loaner program, BYOD spaces and access to numerous academic software titles.

Students In Need of Computers

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 Stony Brook Instructional Network Computers. There are a total of 5 public SINC Sites . Plus, DoIT has PCs, printer/scanner/copiers located in the Main Library SINC Site, Melville Library Reading Rooms and HSC Commons. Also, remote printers can be found all over campus. Review location resource map below. SINC Sites also offer BYOD areas, group & individual study areas.

More computer labs on campus can be found in the Residential Computing Centers, to include software availability 24/7 on your personal device using the Virtual SINC Site. Print from Anywhere services are supported by every DoIT printer.

The LAPTOP LOAN PROGRAM for students, and Tech Center services are now available to all students in the Main Library SINC Site.

More About the Virtual SINC Site

Student Printing In SINC Sites

All registered Stony Brook students have a semester long quota of ~1500 pages (75 credit) in the SINC Sites, Health Sciences Library, and Residential Computing Centers or by using the Print From Anywhere service. Funding for student printing comes from the Student Technology Fee.  Stony Brook uses the Pharos system to manage printing. 

In order to use an all in one printer/scanner/copier, send print jobs to the print queue from a SINC Site computer, or from a personal computer using the Print From Anywhere softwareweb browseror email. Students need their Stony Brook University ID card to release their print jobs.

Printing quota only gets deducted if you either print or copy. Using the scanning feature will not deduct from your printer quota!

Print From Anywhere Service

The Print From Anywhere service allows students to send print jobs to the SINC Site Print Queue from their own computers. Members of the campus community with an active Pharos account can send their print jobs to the Print From Anywhere Queue from mobile devices (smartphones and tablets) as well as computers via web browser, and email.  When on campus, students can print to the Pharos Printer from their own machine once they install the Print From Anywhere client (software)
