Student Technology Centers and Consulting

Student Technology Centers (STCs) are located in several buildings on campus.

Individual study areas and collaborative spaces for group work are available in addition to Wi-Fi and power for those who prefer to bring their own devices. All STCs are equipped with either Windows or Macintosh workstations and many offer thin-client access to IUanyWare applications as well as easy access to printing.  Many locations are staffed with consultants, including a 24-hour STC in the ICTC.

Student Network ID and ADS Domain Account

The Network ID gives students access to the computer systems maintained by UITS at IUPUI. With a Network ID, students can create various computer accounts, change the passwords for their accounts, choose their preferred email address (the address that corresponds to the account where they want to receive their messages), and more. With a Network ID, students can log into Student Technology Center computers, as well as use Oncourse, IU’s online course environment (oncourse.iu.edu).
Students who do not have a Network ID should see the IU Accounts Management Service page at itaccounts.iu.edu. On the first screen, select the options “Student” and “Create my first IU computing accounts and passwords.” From there, the student will be asked to review and agree with the guidelines for appropriate use of IU accounts. Students will then identify themselves with their last name, birth date, and the last four digits of their IU student ID number. To receive a student ID number, students should contact the Office of the Registrar in the Campus Center. For other information about the Network ID, students should call the UITS Support Center at (317) 274-HELP (4357).

IUware and License Agreement Software

IU maintains a number of university-wide software license agreements with a variety of vendors in order to provide a wide-range of multi-discipline software titles.  Examples include the Microsoft Office suite (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.) and Adobe Creative Suite (Acrobat, Photoshop, After Effects, etc.).  A large variety of other tools are also available to students at no charge via download.  For a complete listing of the products available and how to get them, visit IUware at http://iuware.iu.edu

There are several ways to access these software resources at IU:
