A Letter of Welcome

Greetings from the Division of Information Technology,

     Thank you for choosing UNCP as your University. We think you made a wonderful choice as your future starts now where learning gets personal. Your success is important to the UNCP Information Technology team (DoIT) as we strive to offer an affordable, personalized, high- quality educational experience. You can always contact our DoIT Helpdesk for assistance at 521.6260 or helpdesk@uncp.edu. Also, find valuable and helpful information on our technology Website at http://www.uncp.edu/doit/. Around campus, multiple computer facilities are available and you may access the computers, the network and all online information using your one username and password. Two favorite computer facilities are located in the Library and University Center respectively. However, there are computer facilities in many academic buildings and some residence halls, and all are available to all students.

     If you have your own computer, you can purchase Microsoft software and operating systems at a huge discount in the University Bookstore. You may also access various software packages online and use them on your local computer through our Virtual Computing Lab at http://www.uncp.edu/doit/vcl. These applications will run on any computer with an Internet connection. Finally, if you experience technology issues, don't get frustrated, get help. Find help from DoIT's one point of contact, our Helpdesk. Call 521.6260, walk-in to the counter in the DF Lowry Building, or e-mail helpdesk@uncp.edu.

     Again, the staff members of the Division of Information Technology are glad you're here and look forward to offering our congratulations on your graduation day.
