The Information Technology Services Department was formed in 1997 by merging Administrative Computer Services, Academic Computer Services and the Telecommunications Department into a unified organization whose objective is to provide and maintain effective tools enabling the distribution and application of electronic information for the entire University community.
The Information Technology Services mission is to help students, faculty, and staff achieve their information technology goals in a responsive, delighted, and cost effective manner.
To accomplish this, the department's staff of 30 technical and professional employees plan, implement and maintain thousands of miles of network wire and optical fiber, scores of micro to mid-size computers, hundreds of peripheral devices, dozens of switching and routing devices, millions of lines of computer program code and billions of bytes of data storage capacity.
ITS operates the University of Hartford's data, telephone and video networks, the main administrative and academic computer systems and four of the academic computer labs. We also provide support, assistance and training for students, faculty and staff who use the University's networks and systems.
