Inside Linfield - Student Information

Technology Information for Students

Linfield University recognizes the need to provide students with a high quality computing environment. All student's residence hall rooms have Ethernet network connections along with wireless network access (also available in most public areas of the campus). We have two computer labs for general student use that are open 24 hrs/7 days a week (located in Renshaw Hall).  NOTE:  The large Renshaw Computer Lab has been temporarily relocated to the Library.  The smaller lab's temporary location (because of construction) is TBD.  There are also computers in the Nicholson Library, and a number of academic departments have computers available for student use.

ITS provides numerous services for students. If you need assistance, please feel free to stop by Malthus Hall, call (503) 883-2553 or email

What ITS does

We will:

  • Fix faulty Ethernet jacks in all campus housing.
  • Perform basic malware and virus cleaning. Not all infections will be able to be removed with the basic cleaning tools, and may require a more in-depth cleaning service not provided by ITS.
  • Provide recommendations when service is not supported (i.e. outside vendor contact).
  • Provide phone support.
  • Provide access to Office products and file storage services via Office 365.

We do not:

  • Repair computers or other hardware not mentioned above.
  • Setup computers for other local networks (Verizon, AT&T).
  • Provide Operating Systems (Windows, Mac OS, Linux) or other software (Adobe, etc.) for student use.
  • Provide file storage services other than Office 365.
