Information Technology

values Moving towards sustainable practices means a triple win for all of us – increased efficiency, less impact on the environment, and lower costs. IT is committed to ensuring the campus network is protected. Information and communication security are crucial to effective campus functioning. IT is making every prudent step to ensure that information resources and technologies are accessible, for an inclusive learning and working environment. The only way we can succeed in the shared vision of making learning pre-eminent is to work together. We adopt strategies that are both prudent in the short term and that will strengthen the university for the long term.
