MIT Student Information Processing Board
We are MIT's volunteer student computing group, improving computing at
MIT since 1969. Today, SIPB projects provide innovative services and
special expertise to the MIT community. We have an office just
outside the Athena cluster in the student center W20, and you are
welcome to come by to ask us for help or to hang around, use our
computers, and maybe get involved. You can find out what's abuzz in the SIPB community at Planet SIPB. We host a number of events, which are enumerated on our calendar.
