New Student Technology Resources

Welcome to Georgetown University! A wealth of technology resources and services are available to you. University Information Services (UIS) is here to help!

You can also check out our resources to help get you started for when you’ve arrived on campus. Additionally, you can view our Intro to Technology Services for Main Campus or Intro to Technology Services for the Medical Center.

  • Technology in Your Residence Hall
  • Securing your Data and Devices:  Securing your data and devices is critical to protecting your online identity. Windows 10 computers come with Microsoft Defender anti-virus software. (Defender won’t run if you have another anti-virus program installed.) UIS’s security team offers tips for enabling automatic updates for your system. Make sure to keep your residence locked, register your computer with GUPD, and never leave your devices unattended in public places.

Note: All members of the Georgetown community are required to enroll in Georgetown Duo two-factor authentication, which provides an extra level of security for your GU password and data.
