What is Information Services?

Information Services (IS) maintains a reliable technology infrastructure and provides technology services to the campus community consistent with the mission and vision of the University. IS provides support, training, computer, network and Internet services to the entire University. We connect the campus community members to each other, to their work and studies, and to the information and technical resources they need to achieve their goals. Service is our central focus, inspired by the Marianist charism found throughout our institution’s operations.

St. Mary’s University provides faculty, students, and staff easy connection to Wi-Fi while visiting other academic institutions worldwide. A new wireless service known as eduroam allows users from participating institutions to access a secure, encrypted wireless network using their home organization’s login credentials. St. Mary’s faculty and students who travel throughout the world can use their St. Mary’s credentials when studying or visiting other eduroam institutions. With eduroam, you do not need to request a guest account at the institution you are visiting.

The eduroam network is used by more than 400 other U.S. higher education institutions and nearly 1,000 institutions worldwide. Visit the eduroam website for the list of participating institutions.

When traveling, St. Mary’s users will select the eduroam Wi-Fi network and use their St. Mary’s University email address and St. Mary’s password to connect. To save time and ensure proper functionality, test your mobile device before leaving the St. Mary’s University campus. Contact Technical Support Services for assistance at 210-431-4357.
