New to K-State? Check out the New to IT Web page

Submitted by Betsy Edwards

Faculty, staff and students who are new arrivals at K-State will find essential IT information and resources on the New to IT at K-State Web page, which covers eIDs/passwords, computer networks, email, labs, printing, software, buying a computer, computer repair and more.

The Web page is updated at least twice a year to cover new IT services and resources, and changes in procedures, websites, and contacts. Recent updates include:

  • Connecting to K-State’s network has updated wireless network details, plus a link to the wireless configuration tool to set up a wireless connection for laptops and other mobile devices.
  • Wireless printing to the university computing labs and K-State InfoCommons is available via an installable app (for Macs and for PCs).
  • File sharing using Zimbra Briefcase is free for all K-Staters.
  • Backing up data can be done using external hard drives and/or cloud-based storage devices. Review other considerations when selecting a backup strategy.
  • Designated access allows K-State students to grant others access to their financial information in iSIS, the student information system. For more information, visit the Designated Access Web page.

Inquiries about K-State IT resources should be directed to the IT Help Desk, 214 Hale Library, 785-532-7722, helpdesk@k-state.edu.
