Computer access areas are located in Alcuin Library at SJU and the Clemens Library at CSB. The Centers are open until midnight on most days and are staffed at all times with well-trained and enthusiastic student workers who are available to assist students. Laser printers are available in each Center. Faculty, Staff, and Students also have the option to print to a lab printer wirelessly from a personal computer or mobile device.
Residence hall computer clusters are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
High speed network connections up to 1Gb are available in all residence hall rooms and provide connectivity to the Internet and network resources for student-owned devices 24/7. Connection cables are provided at no extra charge.
CSB/SJU has wireless access in every building on both campuses.
Software Tools for Teaching and Learning
Information Technology Services provides access to network software applications at no extra charge for students who have connected their own computer to the campus network. Software is accessible from residence hall rooms, computing centers, computer clusters, and learning spaces.
Many Faculty members maintain online course materials using the cloud-based Canvas Learning Management System. Canvas can be accessed from any networked computer, from personal devices, and via the Canvas apps for iOS and Android devices.
CSB/SJU partners with Microsoft to provide you with email and file storage. You can access these web services from any computer on campus. For off-campus users, Outlook is accessible from any web browser via an Internet connection.
Kivuto downloads provide online access to OS and other software downloads (i.e. Microsoft Office) for which we are able to offer personal licenses.
Network Settings and Storage
The same software is accessible from all networked PCs regardless of their location.
Faculty, Staff, and Students can customize PC screens to their liking and those same settings will follow them around to any other networked PC.
Faculty, Staff, and Students are given ample file storage space and/or cloud storage to store personal documents. Network storage, like network applications, is also accessible from any networked PC or Mac and is backed up on a nightly basis.
The student technology fee entitles each student to have a network account, access to an e-mail account, file storage space, basic printing, support, network connection in room, IT Services training, and other services.
Print management software helps manage the costs of printing on campus. Each student will have a $25.00 credit applied to their student printing account at the beginning of each semester. This credit is equivalent to 500 single-sided pages at $0.05 per page or approximately 830 double-sided pages at $0.06 per page. To facilitate conservation, the faculty are encouraged to allow submission of class papers online rather than on paper.
Training workshops on many of our popular software applications are offered at no extra charge to students, faculty and staff. Workshops are scheduled to accommodate class schedules and are offered in the evenings as well.
Students requiring connection assistance with their personal devices can drop off their devices at the IT Services Help Desk on either campus. Connection assistance is available throughout the academic year.
