Technology Services

At Northern State University, we know that technology is an essential building block for your success.
We're committed to providing the technology and support you need to meet your educational goals.

Technology Services, also known as Northern Educational Technology (NET) Services, works to ensure you have convenient, reliable access to essential technology - whether you're on campus or off. Our wireless network extends to all buildings on campus, including residence halls - and our tech support desk is open at times convenient for you.


Technology and Access for Students

As a new student, you’ll want to review our requirements for hardware and software below.

Our services include:

  • Free computer support and repair for students. New hardware charges may apply.
