A NOTE FROM ITS

Dear Students,

Welcome back! We are excited to have you back on campus and we want to take a moment to remind you of the services available to you from Information Technology Services (ITS). Come and visit the Technology Hub to see some of our redesigned spaces including the Help Desk and the Tech Stop that offers charging stations for your mobile devices. While you’re here, visit the Emerging Technology Studio (ETS) and sign up to become 3D printer “certified”. The ETS is a great resource for class projects and to try the latest technologies. Looking for help in your Residence Hall? Schedule a visit with your local ResCon who can help with your technology in your room. You have access to Google Apps through your B-Mail account and Microsoft Office 365- visit binghamton.edu/its for additional information. Many more services and our friendly Help Desk are available to support your technology needs while you are a student here at Binghamton. Stop by and see us soon to learn more. Best wishes for a successful semester and we hope to see you soon!
