Information Technology Center and the Media Center

The Information Technology & Media Services department is here to support all Assumption students as they use technology to achieve their educational goals.  We are committed to providing students, faculty, and staff with the networking, software, computer facilities and support services necessary to foster academic excellence.  We serve to empower our users with reliable services and encourage the exploration and innovative uses of technology.   

We understand that Graduate students often have many other commitments besides their school work, and sometimes technology seems to get in the way more than it helps.  But we are here to help!  For Help Desk hours and contact information, visit our webpage.
