Welcome back students! Technology Services has put together a list of some of the most important technologies you might encounter this year at Loyola.
Please Note: Effective September 2015, Java will no longer be supported by Google Chrome. Several web applications, such as Netflix, that require Java, will no longer work with Chrome. Please use another browser such as Firefox, Internet Explorer, or Safari, to use these applications.
For your convenience, we have added new printers at various location around campus, including the 3rd floor of Knott Hall, the basement of Donnelly Science Center and a new color printer in the College Center near the mail room. Please visit the Smart Printing website for a campus printer map.
A software upgrade was installed in July that has improved the performance of Mobile Printing from mobile devices (laptops, phones, tablets, etc). To use Mobile Printing, send an email with your attached document from your @loyola.edu address to email@example.com for b&w or firstname.lastname@example.org for color. Learn more about mobile printing.

XFINITY On CampusTM
TM, available to stream when you want. You can also upgrade to HBO®, Showtime®, Starz®, the Sports Entertainment Package with NFL RedZone, international networks, or other premium networks starting as low as $9.99/month.
Technology Services has upgraded over 250 access points in the residence halls to the newest fastest standard. We also simplified access, so now all devices that do not allow you sign in with a username and password will get full access through HoundNet_Guest. We have also just about doubled Loyola's Internet bandwidth for a faster Internet connection.
iGoForth – Loyola’s Mobile App Incubator Contest
The third annual student mobile app development contest began in the Spring. Students, faculty and administration can still pitch ideas for Loyola mobile apps, and students can still register to build the apps, which will be voted on by the Loyola community to win a prize. The Idea Gallery closes Sept. 14, and registration for a team ends Oct. 2.
