RLRC Resources

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:

  • Free drop-in tutoring for algebra and writing during all open hours, available face-to-face and by email--and for higher-level math, biology, psychology, A&P, and other subjects at specific times that vary each semester
  • Free tutoring by appointment for a wide variety of subjects—available face-to-face and by web conferencing
  • Academic advising
  • Test Proctoring
  • Wi-fi: Use the network named DragonZone.
  • One Mac computer for student use only.
  • Computer lab upstairs and downstairs with various common programs installed
  • Headphones at the front desk for those who forgot to bring their own
  • Tech Support often available to resolve computer or printer problems on RLRC devices and personal devices.  (Other RLRC staff may also be able to answer simple questions.)
  • Free greyscale printing for all patrons—limit 10 pages per month for public patrons
  • Free color printing, copying, and scanning—for HutchCC courses and legal documents only
  • Faxing available downstairs for a small fee of $1 per page
  • Library resources and services

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.

Community Access

RLRC is open to the public. 

Due to the epidemic, HutchCC strongly encourages patrons to wear masks.

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 limited 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.
