Information and Instructional Technologies
Information and Instructional Technologies (IIT) provides computers, software and support to all users within the St. Olaf community.
Over 280 public Macintoshes and PC-compatibles connect to a campus-wide, fiber-optic network that provides free access to e-mail, software servers, printing resources and the Internet.
Public labs in most academic buildings and all residence halls provide equal access to equipment and software for all students, whether or not they are enrolled in a course requiring the use of the computer.
In addition to the public facilities, 22 departments share or have their own specialized computing labs. This brings to over 800 the number of computers that students may use.
Students may bring their own computer to campus but are not required to do so. Students who own a computer can connect to the campus network in their own rooms in all residence halls.
IIT employs 22 full-time professionals who support the computing needs of the entire campus - students, staff and faculty. Staff members are available between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, and student assistants are on duty during the day, in the evenings and on weekends. Students who wish to work as consultants should contact IIT.
In using the college's computing resources, students agree to adhere to the rules and regulations of Information and Instructional Technologies. These rules are outlined in Introduction to Information and Instructional Technologies for Students, with complete policies found here. Penalties for the misuse of computing resources are outlined here.
