Welcome to NYU's Information Technology Services
Information Technology Services (ITS) is NYU's central organization for technology-based services for University students, faculty, staff, and administrators. ITS provides computer services, Internet resources, and telephony services to the entire University. ITS connects people to people, to their work and studies, and to the information, training, and technical resources they need to achieve their goals. Service is our central focus and concern.
This page contains a brief overview for staff of the services and facilities offered by ITS. We encourage you to explore this site by clicking on any of the popular links below or in the menu at the left, or by typing keywords into the search engine that appears on each page.
