Creighton University was recently ranked as the #5 Wired University by PC Magazine and the Princeton Review. Creighton won this award because of the wealth of student technology resources.
Paying for tuition online, registering for classes on-line and submitting a paper through your class's website are just a few examples of resources students use daily.
Creighton is opening the iJay, which will offer Apple products and services along with accessories from Apple and other brands tailored to your needs as a student at Creighton University! The iJay is conveniently located on campus on the second floor of the Harper Center. It's a unique partnership between educational and commercial interests, as it doubles as an education center. Students have the opportunity to gain real world, hands-on experience running a retail store while facilitating conversations and collaboration about technology between students and faculty members.

Students who want to leave their laptop in their room can get online at one of the Student Technology Labs.

A nominal fee is charged per page for printing.
Wireless All Over Campus
Wireless is available in many public spaces including all three libraries, the Skutt Student Center and the lobby of each residence hall. Notebook computers should have an 802.11a/b/g/n wireless card to access the wireless network.
Broadband in Your Room
At Creighton University, each residence hall room is equipped with high speed internet access and cable television. Each room has one or more cable modems that have four Ethernet ports so you and your roommate(s) can connect all of your internet enabled devices. For connection to the wired network you will need a 10/100 Ethernet adapter. The Student Service Desk can help install and configure your Ethernet adapter for connection to the network.
