Students: Get Connected!

The Information Technology Services (ITS) Help Desk is here to assist you - email or call 651-696-6525. If you bring a computer, smartphone, tablet or gaming device to campus, it must be registered before connecting to the College network. Registration simply associates your name with your device(s), so that we can contact you quickly if there are problems.  To register, launch a Web browser and go to

Want to get on wireless?  The 'Macalester-Student' wireless network segment is set aside for your use. To get on it, you must enter a wireless 'key' one time. (The 2014-2015 student wireless key remains the same as it was last year, so if you are returning, you should be good.)  The key has been emailed to you via the "ITS-Alerts-Student" list on Wednesday 8/27.

Please do not share this key - if you do, you may compromise the security and confidentiality of your data.  Be assured that guests have their own dedicated network segment ('Macalester-Guest,' which does not require a key.  Have Mom and Dad use this one.)

If you have any difficulty with your computer, stop by the drop-in sessions in Neill Hall 304 on Thursday, August 28th and Friday, August 29th between 9:00 AM and 4:00 PM. If you are unable to attend a drop-in session, the ITS Help Desk in Neill 314 will also be open 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM Saturday 8/30, Sunday 8/31 and Monday 9/1.  New students, check out the First Year "Techlist" for more information on campus computing:
