Undergraduate students are supported with a variety of computing services. Students will receive an SCU Username that provides access to multiple digital services via MySCU. Students also have access to ubiquitous high-speed wired and wireless networks for campus resources as well as connection to the internet via the University’s 10 Gbps connections. Students may use the network to access their Gmail and Google Workspace account, Camino learning management system, SmartPrint, Zoom web conferencing, Portfolium, Qualtrics, and endpoint protection/antivirus software.
SCU email is used by the University as one of the communication channels to send official notifications to undergraduate students, and is also used as a frequent communication tool between and among faculty and students. Students are therefore urged to use their SCU email address as their primary email. Students who opt to utilize other email services are advised to check their SCU email periodically to avoid missing important communications.

The Information Security Office advocates for the protection of the University’s information assets, and works with campus groups to ensure that students, faculty, and staff have access to all of the information resources they need.
