Faculty & Staff Computing at Syracuse University
Syracuse University's Information Technology Services (ITS) provides a wide range of computing services and facilities for faculty and staff, including high-speed wired and wireless (AirOrangeX) Internet connections across campus, e-mail, file storage space on the SU network, Web hosting services, online academic and personal information resources through MySlice, and computer labs equipped with specialized academic software technologies.
Departmental and Organizational Support Services
While the ITS Help Desk provides support to staff and faculty, we have limited access to many of your accounts and devices on campus. It is important that staff and faculty identify their organizational unit support personnel. These individuals will generally be the administrators of your Syracuse University email account, access to department and/or office resources (such as computers, printers, etc.), and are the support staff that would deploy to your location if necessary.
- Online Success Toolkit - ITS has partnered with leaders throughout campus to provide an Online Success Toolkit to prepare online instructors. Topics include getting your courses ready and links to both academic and IT resources.
