Student IT Helpdesk: Full Service IT Shop, No Extra Charge.

Housed in the IT Services offices in Taylor Hall, the Student Helpdesk is a full-service technical support shop run by students, for students. This is the place to bring all your computing problems, from simple password trouble to “Oh no, my computer just died.” We will do our best to get you up and running—all at no extra charge!

Internet Access

It is critical that students have easy access to the internet and other online resources. To help make that happen, we have deployed a wi-fi network that you can access 24x7x365 from anywhere on campus.

Computer Labs

Don’t feel like using your own computer? Need to print right before class? There are open computer labs throughout campus with computers and printers just for students. The flagship area is the Information Commons in Leslie J. Savage Library, which has more than 50 workstations, black & white and color printers, scanners, and individual meeting rooms with big-screen displays that can be reserved as a collaboration space for your next group project.

Our Mission

The Department of Information Technology Services partners with the Western Colorado University community to evaluate, implement and manage technology resources to enrich the learning and life experience of our students, augment academics and teaching, facilitate business operations, enhance the campus environment and contribute to the overall mission of the University.
