On the 3rd floor of Anderson Tower lives a unique group of people. We are the Computer Interest Floor, a special interest housing group at the University of Rochester whose interests and activities are as diverse and numerous as our members. With a history going back to 1983, we’re just as involved and dedicated to the university community as when we provided some of the few computing resources on campus.

We have just completed significant upgrades to our Web server.  It is now running on much newer hardware, and the software configuration has been cleaned up.  The functionality of the site should be the same as before, but if you experience any issues, please contact techdirector@cif.rochester.edu so we can fix them!
