The Division of Information Technology provides students, faculty and staff with technology infrastructure and support services--computing systems, networking, technical support for systems and applications, computer support, academic and classroom technology support, training, telecommunications services, and research computing support including high performance computing. Use of these University computing and data facilities is governed by UW Regulation 3-690, Ethical Use of Computers and Data Communications Facilities.

The office of the Vice President of the Division of Information Technology is located in room 372 of the Information Technology Center and is open during normal business hours. Those in need of assistance are encouraged to call the Client Support Help Desk at 766-4357, option 1.

IT’s Help Desk: provides technology support during normal business hours.

IT Walk-In Service Center and Resnet: provides help to students, faculty, and staff with personal computers and mobile devices. The Walk-In Service Center is located in the ITC building room 160 and is typically open Monday – Friday, 9am – 4pm with reduced hours during breaks and the summer months. The Walk-In Service Center is closed during all University holidays.

One of the primary goals of the Service Center while helping with personal computing devices is to teach customers. Therefore, Information Technology does not allow devices to be dropped off to be repaired. IT requests its customers to take an active role and remain with their device while any repair work is underway. The IT Walk-In Service Center also provides one-on-one consulting if help is needed in purchasing a new personal computer or mobile device. More information on the Walk-In Service Center can be found at

Internet and Network Access: an extensive campus-wide data network provides connectivity to the Internet in all occupied campus buildings, computer labs across campus, and university housing. Wireless Ethernet (Wi-Fi) is available in most campus locations. Students, faculty, and staff should connect to the UWyo wireless network, since it is a faster, more secure connection than UWguest. More information can be found at or call the IT Help Desk at 766-HELP (4357), option 1.

Computer Labs: are located throughout campus for students, faculty, and staff use. The computers labs contain computers with a wide variety of software and computing equipment.
