Student Technology Center (STC)

Students on laptop and phone

Welcome to Loyola! We know that students have important demands when it comes to technology, and we are here to help you navigate through all of the technology resources that Loyola has to offer. Loyola students have access to our Student Technology Center (STC), which is responsible for the management and oversight of all student interaction with Loyola’s technology. The STC strives to maintain awareness of students’ technology needs and to stay current with the challenging and dynamic methods used to learn and to socialize in an academic environment. When you have a technology concern or question, STC is your resource.
