The Purdue Community HUB

Presented by Information Technology at Purdue (ITaP) and Research Computing (RCAC).

Purdue's ITaP Research Computing division collaborates with many research groups across campus and endeavours to provide access to leading-edge computational, data storage systems, a broad range of high-performance computing resources, and collaborative research tools.

The Purdue Community hub focuses on providing “collaboratories” that support “team science.” Each research group is a focal point for the goals of the research project and its community.  As a Purdue project the community hub also provides additional resources to researchers, faculty and students, alike.

Research Groups

Research Groups are an easy way to share research materials and discuss various related topics, either privately or with the world.  A research group or lab can either be public, restricted (users may read a brief description or overview but not view content) or completely private. Every group has a wiki, an area to publish resources, and a discussion board for talking among other features.

Software Downloads

Many software packages are available for download for Purdue students, staff and faculty.  Most notably, virus protection and security software.


A broad range of services are available ranging from leading-edge computational, data storage systems, high-performance computing resources, hardware and software for large-scale scientific computing, training and education, and consultation.
