R on UCL Computers

UCL Computers have two different versions of R and RStudio installed. Some packages require the newer version of R so make sure you're starting RStudio from the correct folder under the Start menu.

The old version appears under Applications Q-S, while the newer version is under it's own R 3.2.0 folder.

Old Version, R 3.0.1 New Version, R.3.2.0

When RStudio starts, the console displays the R version number.

You can also verify by typing version at the console.
