R is an implementation of the S programming language and is a powerful software environment for statistical computing and graphics. It has a large user community which provides support and develops various R libraries for specialized analysis.
If you want staff on hand to assist you with R, come to the CTRL lab during our regular hours. If you have a complex problem, please contact us by phone (202-885-3862) or email (email@example.com) to set-up an appointment, otherwise, just drop in!
R can be accessed in the following campus computer labs:

R is also available for use on AU's High Performance Cluster. This requires special permissions to use. For more information, click here.
CTRL Lab offers a variety of workshops each semester to train members of the AU community in the software that it supports.
