Bringing a Computer to Campus

North Park’s Information Technology department provides support for computer, networking, and other technology resources on campus. 

Having your own personal computer or laptop will be very useful while at North Park. Many instructors require access to a computer to complete homework or to do research for papers. North Park provides wireless access across the campus. You can work on projects and access the Internet from any campus housing location or academic classroom space, and many other campus locations are covered as well. We also provide for a way to print from your personal computer. Please review our minimum system requirements for your computer and be sure to check out our Acceptable Use Policy.

You’re given a North Park network and email account to access North Park’s resources. This account gives you access to all of the online services we offer. To complete the setup of your account go to our Account Management page. You will need your 7-digit student ID number to begin this process. You can find your student ID number on your schedule and/or registration packet cover letter. If you can’t find this information, please call (773) 244-5737.

When you arrive on campus with your computer, our wiki will explain connecting to our wireless network.

Assistance with Personal Computers

A great deal of information is available on our knowledge base. Information Technology is also available to help you connect to the network. Drop by between 8:00 am and 4:30 pm, Monday through Friday, in Caroline Hall lower level, room B3.

For additional questions please contact Information Technology directly.
