The use of technology is widely integrated into almost all facets of life at SUNY Poly. Every student receives a SUNY Poly computer account for access to computer and network resources and an email account for college communications. All official electronic communications between students, faculty and campus offices are conducted through the campus email system. Students, faculty, and staff can get assistance with the various technology services around campus by going to, calling, or submitting a help ticket to the Help Desk located in the Cayan Library. Community members can use SUNY Poly’s computer labs as well as the wireless and wired network to access various specialized software applications. Virus protection and other software are available to students at no or low costs. Information pertaining to computing resources and software downloads is available at

Students are encouraged to be an active part of the technology infrastructure of the college. Students may elect to pursue employment within one of the technology support areas through the Human Resources Department, Financial Aid Office, or Graduate Office, or through coordination with the appropriate faculty advisor, address a specific technology challenge as part of a for-credit academic experience.
