Technology Services supports web browsers and web-based collaborative tools such as email, calendaring, file sharing and audio/video conferencing. Popular software applications for Microsoft Windows and Apple macOS are supported in the lab areas and computer classrooms.

The campus computing environment consists of virtualized and cloud servers running Microsoft Windows and Linux operating systems and more than 2,000 networked desktop computers with direct access to the Internet and the Washington Research Library Consortium. Central computing services are accessible over the campus network and via web browsers and virtual private networking from outside campus.
