Welcome to The Office of Information & Technology Services at Washington & Jefferson College. IT Services is available to assist you with your academic and administrative technology needs. Every faculty and staff member receives an account on the W&J network. Through this account you can access academic and administrative systems, e-mail, Web servers, Internet, our Technology ITS Policies and Procedures, and many other services. If you're new to W&J you may find the following overview to be helpful. Should you have any questions please email the Helpdesk or call at campus extension 6022.


IT Services creates network accounts for each new faculty or staff member. The account information is then sent to the immediate supervisor (for faculty, we provide that information to the Academic Affairs Office), who in turn distributes it to the new employee. Usernames for faculty and staff members generally follow a standard convention of first initial, followed by last name. For example, John Doe's username is jdoe. The initial account password is assigned by IT Services, and users are required to change their password during their first account login, and then on a regular basis in accordance with the password policy. User names are not case sensitive, but passwords are. Users are encouraged to change their passwords frequently. The Password Policy can be found on the Technology ITS Policies and Procedures page.


Every employee has an email account. IT Services supports Microsoft Outlook and Outlook Web Access.
