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 telephone 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 students 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.
Connecting to NYU-NET
This central page links you to information about all of the ways you can access NYU-NET, including: from your home or residence hall room; using the NYURoam wireless network; from laptops at Bobst Library; or from NYUHome Stations around campus.
An introduction to NYUHome (NYU's portal service), with instructions on how to get started. A list of NYUHome stations (public computers) around campus is available at www.nyu.edu/its/homestations.
ITS provides a variety of software to help you protect your computer and make the most of NYU-NET, including Symantec AntiVirus and Windows Defender. The page also contains information about the Microsoft Developers Network Academic Alliance, which makes it possible for qualifying NYU departments and researchers to receive distributions of the latest Microsoft development tools, operating systems, server software, documentation, and technical references.
Google Apps for Education
E-mail and Calendar are two of the major services included in Google Apps for Education. These services, plus Docs (document storage and sharing), Sites (websites and wikis), and Talk (instant messaging), are now available to enhance collaboration among NYU community members. These services are available in addition to, not replacing, similar NYU services such as Files 2.0, Webspace, and the NYU chat server. See the Google Apps website for more information about Google Apps for Education.
These pages contain everything you need to know to get your laptop computer connected to NYURoam, your campus wireless network.
