The IT Open Use Computer Laboratory is located on the first floor of the Jane Bancroft Cook Library in the Academic Resource Center (ARC).

Microsoft Office, Windows, Internet browsers, and other application software are also available on the lab's computers.
Email accounts are available for all faculty, staff, and currently enrolled students. New faculty and staff accounts can be requested through your department or division office manager.
Students are provided an NCF email account and can apply for it online through NewCLEIS. These accounts will be used by faculty and staff to communicate with students. Students may also use their account as their regular email account. The accounts are managed by Information Technology and will remain active throughout the time a student remains at New College (including during off-campus study and approved Leaves of Absence). Students are responsible for monitoring these accounts for official announcements, communications from faculty and staff, and other important campus information.
The New College of Florida Campus Portal, MyNCF, provides convenient access to online services, including email, course registration through NewCLEIS, a calendar system, New College announcements, Banner, and Canvas, among others.

A number of automated interfaces have also been developed and implemented to enable New College to leverage the most effective and efficient means to transmit and receive information critical to processing campus-wide transactions and reporting.
