To students new to Loyola, before you arrive at orientation, you’ll have 4 stages to complete on the Technology Roadmap. There are short videos (or PDFs) to review that will guide you through the stages.
Information Technology Services serves as a partner and leader for technology needs and initiatives to enhance learning, teaching, research, and operations for Loyola University Chicago, higher education, and technology communities.
As the Loyola Information Commons will operate 24/7 with extended hours for finals during the last two weeks of the semester, Digital Media Services will staff the 2nd floor service desk around-the-clock as well. Short-term loan access will continue to be available in addition to multimedia lab and printing support within the building. The extended hours will be effective Sunday, December 2nd through Saturday, December 15th when the semester ends. We wish everyone the best with all final papers, presentations, and exams ahead!

Our Poster Submission Form has migrated to an ITS Service Portal service request form. This allows for greater flexibility including automatic cost calculations (no need for requesting quotes), receipts emails are carbon-copied to University Account Code budget administrators, and affords greater ability to monitor order progress as we receive and process your orders.

If you are currently using “LUC,” no changes are required to your devices. READ MORE

ITS Website Redesign
Welcome to the newly redesigned Information Technology Services website! The redesign allows for more centralized information and resources for all things ITS. The left-hand navigation menu on the main page is organized to provide a listing of the top five common resources and answers to questions. Along the top, you will find drop-down menus that highlight the other services as well as drop-down menus for a few key areas such as Digital Media Services (DMS), and Instructional Technology & Research Support (ITRS). We have also added details about the various teams within ITS to provide clarity and a better understanding of the groups and the technologies we support. If you like to offer suggestions or feedback to assist us with improving the website, please contact us at 773.508-4ITS or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
