Yes, you are able to connect to the network with your personal laptop. Wireless access is provided for registered students and their computers throughout campus. Please note:

  • A valid student/banner ID and password is required;

If my laptop breaks down, can I use Information Technology Services (ITS) for assistance?

What happens if I run out of prints?

Purchase more from the Campus Bookstore and bring your proof of payment to the Learning Commons to have the credits added to your account.

What services are offered at the Service Desk?

  • Access to how-to guides and technical support;
  • General troubleshooting of software and hardware issues;
