$197.28 - Alot of money, right? 

Well if you're a student here at Indiana University that is how much you have already paid for your student technology fee. You might be thinking, "Gee, that seems pretty steep for IU Secure!" but what you don't know is that there are many other technological services available to you as an IU student! 

Here's what's important: 

1.  IU HELP LINES 

Not a tech person?  Lost on campus? That's okay, we're here to help!  IU has two 24/7 help lines that are designed to answer any and all of your questions! Want to know when the next soccer game is? or maybe the number for Pizza X? ASK IU can help! Any IU or Bloomington related questions can be answered, all you have to do is dial - 812-855-IUIU (4848)

Feeling like.... 

...before you rip your hair out or throw your computer, call the IT Support Center! 

IU secure not connecting in your dorm? Not sure how to connect your Xbox to the WiFi? The Support Center can help! Any technology related question can be answered by our staff. In person, on the phone, or online! 

  • Walk up support in Wells Library or the IMU
  • Phone number: 812-855-6789
  • Or live chat

These are great for any questions you might have whether it be tech related, or just a general question about IU.  I use them all the time and they are very helpful! 

2. BOX

Get rid of those lousy thumb drives and start saving your files in the "Cloud"!  Box gives every IU student 50 GB of storage and is much more secure then those thumb drives that you forget in the computer labs. You can use this for personal storage or collaboration on group projects! Just log in using your IU User ID and pass phrase!

About The Author
Elisabeth BellClass of 2015

Hey there Hoosiers! My name is Elisabeth Bell and I'm currently a Junior at the greatest school on this planet.  I am pursuing a degree in Informatics with a focus in Journalism and minors in Psychology and Cyber Security...weird mix, right? I spent my freshman year exploring the school and different programs, I fell in love with so many of them I couldn't just pick one!  

I served as the President of the Indiana University Figure Skating Team during the 2012-2013 season and I am currently the treasurer of the team! I have been a competitive figure skater for the majority of my life.  

I do a lot of embarrassing things.  If you see a girl tripping up the stairs, walking into stop signs, or accidently stumbling into the men's bathroom, it's most likely me. Feel free to point and laugh at me.  I probably deserve it. 

GO HOOSIERS!
