The information technology (I.T.) department is the backbone of Molloy College. Our mission is to support the Molloy College community in its teaching, research, administrative and community service endeavors by providing leadership and expertise in information technology solutions. Basically, the information technology department handles all technology issues.
Every department at Molloy College is built from and interfaces with I.T. We provide users with advisory and analytical services and institutional research resources; accessibility to resources within the College and around the world; and the ability to communicate through a variety of media. The I.T. department is responsible for over 625 computers located on campus. And that's not all! The college also supports over 400 printers.
Molloy College runs a high-speed switched network that provides voice, data and video from virtually anywhere on campus. We have kiosks located throughout the campus for on-line student access. You can now stop for a moment to view course schedules, course offerings or even review your bill. Say "hello" online and "good-bye" to waiting on lines. We also maintain a weather station at Jones Beach which provides real time meteorological readings via the Internet. Pretty cool, huh?
Molloy College Helpdesk
The I.T. department offers a helpdesk. We assist with installing and maintaining all of the computers/printers on campus, trouble shooting a variety of problems from software malfunction to network connection and aiding those users who have everyday computer problems.

The Future of I.T.
Information technology is an ever-changing and dynamic industry. Molloy College's I.T. department are in the process of implementing many projects, one of which will give students access to data anywhere on campus through our "Molloy unplugged" wireless campus project. Anyone with a laptop and wireless network card will be able to surf the net, check email and do many other things wirelessly. Molloy College remains committed to satisfying the modern demands of our students.
