Getting started this semester

Are you on campus for the first time this spring? IT has several resources to help you navigate the technology tools that are available to you at S&T. If you’re returning to campus and need a refresher or just want to make sure you have the most updated information, we can help you with that, too! 

You can always contact the IT Help Desk from their website to submit a ticket or initiate a chat.   The Help Desk is open and located on the first floor of the Curtis Laws Wilson library for walk-in visits Monday through Friday between 8:30am and 4:30pm.

A password manager is a security tool stored locally on your computer that helps with creating, storing, and managing all your passwords. Some password managers can even enter your login information when you sign into your accounts via a browser plugin. All you need to remember is one master password to get into the tool. Learn more about password management on the Safe Computing website

Some of the most frequently recommended Password Managers are:
