Rimmer Learning Resource Center (RLRC) is designed to promote student success, retention, and graduation. Thus, it houses many essential services and resources for HutchCC students, free of charge, to help them reach their full potential in their academic endeavors. We encourage students to take advantage of the center's resources:
HutchCC Students can also go online to LearningZone and do a course search for Tutor Services. The course provides independent study resources, links to the tutor email and appointment request form, and more.
Use the contact info below if you have questions about our services or if we can help you in any other way. See our building hours on Rimmer's home page.
RLRC is open to the public. Due to COVID-19 concerns, we currently ask all patrons to wear a mask. If you see the keyboard on top of the computer base, that means it has been sanitized. When you depart, please leave your keyboard on the counter so we know to clean that station.
The community is welcome to visit Rimmer to make free personal use—but not business use—of our computers, wi-fi (accessed through the network DragonZone), library, tech support, and other resources. They may also use our free drop-in tutoring labs for math and writing. If we are busy, however, HutchCC students and faculty will have priority.
For a small fee, all patrons may use the copier and fax machine in the library downstairs. Scanning and color printing are reserved for activities related to HutchCC courses. However, we do offer free greyscale printing through our computers. (We are not equipped for wireless printing from personal laptops.) To print, public patrons will need to use a public ID number they can get from the front desk after presenting a photo ID. Since Rimmer has limited funds to provide this free service, we ask public patrons to courteously limit their printed pages to around ten a month.
The basics of HutchCC's Acceptable Use Policy is visible on the desktop of all public PCs, and the full version is linked below. This governs the computers' use, and failure to adhere to this policy may result in temporary or permanent loss of access.
This short list of resources may help current and prospective students with their studies and success at HutchCC. However, we cannot guarantee that these external sites meet Accessibility standards.
HutchCC students can find many more resources in LearningZone through the public course Tutor Services.
