Information Technology Services
The Information Technology Services department is proud to offer, exclusively to Mitchell Hamline graduates, the following services: For 12 months following graduation you will continue to have the same access and support as when you were a student.
- Network access (Office 365, Canvas, One Drive for Business, & Library Databases).
- Continued access to your student email address. Your @mitchellhamline.edu email account is left in place for 12 months after graduation, after which time your account will be converted to “alumni” status. If you are unable to log in, your password may have expired. You can change your password yourself by going to the self-service password page. Note: when your email account is migrated to an alumni email account you will not lose any of your old emails.
- Wireless Internet access. While on campus you will have access to the Mitchell Hamline wireless network.
- Computer access. Your network login will allow you access to all public computers on campus. This includes all student computers in Hachey Commons and the Library Lab. You also have full printing capabilities (for a small charge) to any student printer in the Library or Central Services.
The following are technology privileges that are provided to graduates for a lifetime:
- Email account – your existing Mitchell Hamline student email account will be converted into an “alumni” account one year from your graduation date. You will continue to be able to use your firstname.lastname@example.org as your email address. This will allow you to preserve your email, calendar, and contacts. This will also eliminate the need for you to forward your information to another account. However, once your account has been changed to “alumni” status, your subscription to Office 365 will expire. If you are using the Mitchell Hamline Microsoft Office suite that was obtained via Mitchell Hamline, you will need to purchase a license directly from Microsoft or another vendor to continue using the MS Office 365 suite of products (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access and Outlook).You can purchase an Office 365 Subscription using the following link: https://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msusa/en_US/cat/Office-365/categoryID.68021500
- Guest wireless Internet access (available throughout campus). If you are going to be on campus, simply select the mitchellhamline network and click Accept to connect to the unsecured wireless service. See “Connecting to Mitchell Hamline’s Wireless Network”for more information.
- Library computer lab access (Microsoft Office Suite, Adobe, Internet access, Library databases). If you are on campus and need a computer, the circulation staff will log you on to any computer in the lab. This gets you Internet, applications and printing access.
