Our Information Technology Services team prides itself on providing excellent customer service and support. We provide solutions to a wide variety of technical issues and access to both online and printed information resources.

Many of the links on this page will take you to services we provide or that we administer. Although the links to these services will take you directly to the information, some of our online services require authentication and have been integrated through our MyNewRiver portal (https://my.newriver.edu), making it much easier to access using single sign-on.

Use the links below to learn more about us, the projects we are involved in, our services, and the non-credit workshops we offer for employees. New students and employees may also learn more about us and our online services from orientation training sessions. Contact your advisor or supervisor for more information.
