LSSU Information Technology offers a variety of services and programs for students. Classroom laboratories provide for instruction that involves hardware and/or software. During non-class hours, General Access Labs provide copies of the software used in classes, Internet access to students, office suite software, and printers. Help for students utilizing software in the classroom or labs is available in the Learning Center. Computers enhance the research ability of the KJS Library with access to the Internet and many databases. The University maintains a student-to-computer ratio of 10:1, which means there is usually a computer available whenever a student needs one.
Upon enrollment, a student will receive Campus Wide ID (CWID) which can be used to access my.lssu.edu, our campus portal which contains email, calendar, course information, and many other useful resources. Instructions and help for using the e-mail account are available at the information Technology HelpDesk in the Administration Building . High Speed Internet Access is also available in the student residences and many locations across campus, including wireless access in the KJS Library.

"The opportunity at LSSU to do research is amazing. This past summer I motored through coves and islands with Prof. Garvon surveying water birds for the affects of pollution. I spent the other part of my summer on the shore of Lake Superior monitoring nests of the endangered Piping Plover."
