IT Solutions provides:

  • Wi-Fi for connectivity of personal devices as well as access to computers through general use computer labs, classroom teaching computer labs, and department labs that directly support academic programs.
  • Free black and white printing in computer labs.
  • TWU technology is strategically located in common areas such as the Denton campus Student Union, student lounges, the Blagg-Huey Library, and residence halls.
  • Computer kiosks appear across TWU’s campuses as an opportunity for students to login to a PC for quick information.
  • TWU classrooms are also equipped with the latest instructional technology providing optimal classroom learning experiences.
  • Students have a wide selection of software resources available to support their studies, including statistical analyses, word processing, and discipline-specific courseware. Students currently have access to a free version of SPSS. Support for students conducting research is offered through the Centers for Research Design & Analysis (CRDA).
  • A forthcoming Science Research Network will give students access via faculty sponsorship to cluster computing sources for data-rich studies.
  • IT Solutions also offers employment opportunities for students on each TWU campus. Check out the Career Connections Center for available jobs.
  • The Student Technology Assistants and Resources (STAR) program employs technically capable students to help with troubleshooting peers' personal technology hardware & software issues. STAR is available on the Denton campus. Labor is free; students only pay for software and parts, if needed.
  • LinkedIn Learning is a web-based, on-demand training resource available to TWU students at no additional cost. With Lynda.com, students can learn about common applications (Canvas, Word, Excel, SPSS) or learn soft skills (leadership, communication) or learn a new skill (photography, design, programming) at their own pace. Students can earn certificates of completion for Lynda courses that can be shared through LinkedIn.
