STUDY IN THE OPEN WORKSPACES
The GIC is a popular study area at McGill University. Whether you need a quiet work space, group study areas, or powerful computers for assignments, the GIC has it all.
PUBLIC COMPUTER AREA
The GIC has over 75 desktop computers that can be used by everyone at McGill. Each desktop is equipped with Windows 10 running on a multicore i7 processor, 16GB RAM, and a GPU for faster geospatial processing. Read more about our equipment here.
Perhaps your work requires a bit more power? The GIC also hosts the GeoAnalytics Lab, a special-access workspace of high-end computers for large datasets and intense processing tasks. Please talk to the director to discuss how you can access the lab.
RENT THE GIC
The large space of the GIC can be rented for faculty events, student events, journal releases, and guest presentations. Please contact the GIC director for details and availability.
