The University of Wisconsin Facility for Shared Technology and Resources (FASTAR) was initiated and funded by UW System Administration to provide UW institutions a shared resource of hardware and staff. Our initial goal, and still a primary focus, is to assist campuses that are in implementation or in operation of the PeopleSoft Student Administration System. Since its inception the set of services provided by FASTAR has grown to include services that are of value not only to PeopleSoft systems, but to many other systems as well. The facility is housed at the Division of Information Technology at UW-Madison.

Please see for more information about FASTAR.
