Computing on Campus
General computing services are coordinated by the Information Technology Services (ITS) for all students, faculty, and staff. Additional computing services are provided by individual schools, colleges, and units. The University’s Information Technology Services provides students, faculty, and regular staff on U-M’s Ann Arbor campus with a Basic Computing Package at no charge, which includes an M+Google account (Google Mail, Calendar, Docs/Drive, Google+, Contacts, Sites, and more), an M+Box account with 50 GB of cloud file storage, and 400 pages of black and white laser printing (per term) in the Campus Computing Sites. ITS can assist students and staff with questions or problems by email or through an online service request.
MPrint is a web-based application that allows you to send documents to U-M printers from your personal computer or mobile device. MPrint accepts documents via upload or a variety of external services (Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, and MFile IFS/AFS) and will convert the document, if necessary, before submitting it for print.
Virtual Sites is a service that allows remote use of a Campus Computing Sites Windows computer and the licensed software on it from any personal computer. This service gives Windows users access to specialized software on an as-needed basis, and it gives Macintosh users a way to use Windows software from their Macintosh computer. The service can be used on or off the U-M campus.
MWireless is the most secure WiFi network and should be used by all U-M faculty, staff, and students. Visit the Get Connected page to learn how to configure the settings on your WiFi device(s). If you are traveling, eduroam (education roaming) is a secured WiFi network service that allows students, faculty and staff to use their home institution’s WiFi credentials to access WiFi network services, when visiting other eduroam participating institutions—without having to set up a guest account. eduroam is offered in more than 50 countries throughout Europe and Asia, as well as the United States and Canada.

At the two full-service locations, in the Michigan Union on Central Campus and Pierpont Commons on North Campus, you can purchase hardware, software, and computer supplies at educational prices and access walk-up tech support, repair, and consulting for personal devices.
