Tech Center

Located in Manchester, all towns are welcome, we are the new yellow pages.

UR Community Tech Center is located at 153 Spruce Street, Manchester, CT. We are dedicated to providing free resources and support to older adults, people with disabilities, and veterans in need of digital literacy skills. Hours: Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays, 10am to 3pm.

We offer a combination of scheduled classes – expertly designed by Senior Planet in partnership with AARP – as well as weekly drop-in hours and special get-togethers to expand your social connections. Our trained instructors and classroom volunteers provide a comfortable and inviting place to learn digital skills – whether you are a true novice, a beginner or someone who currently uses electronic devices but wants to expand their skills. Attendees can learn all things digital, including social media, staying safe online, live video events and more.

We aim to provide group computer workshops, courses and lectures to help individuals develop essential online skills, increase civic engagement, financial security, and how to access health info. People can stop by during our hours, we always have volunteers available to help with your technology questions. We have laptops that are available for use as well and we will train people on our new website features as well.

UR Community Tech Center opened its doors on April 1, 2024, in partnership with the Town of Manchester and a funding award of $50,000 through the town’s American Rescue Plan Act Sustainability Grant Program. Our partnership with Manchester’s Neighborhood and Families Division has provided us with this space in the Eastside Neighborhood Resource Center.
