Information Technology Services (ITS) Updates Service Catalog

After reviewing feedback from the campus community, ITS has launched an update to our service catalog to help familiarize the campus with the services provided by ITS.  The service catalog is a list of some of the most popular services offered to Students, Faculty and Staff.

The content in the service catalog has been more streamlined so Students, Faculty and Staff can find information about IT services faster and easier.  Included in these updates you will find more in-depth information about each service, who can use the service, what is included, how to get the service, how to get support and any costs associated with the service.  Our aim is to make it easier and faster for Students, Faculty and Staff to find information that is relevant to our services.

The updates to the service catalog are ongoing and we’d love to hear your thoughts and ideas on how we can make the catalog better.

Please visit the Service Catalog for updates.
