Getting Started with Technology for Supervisors
The Office of Information Technology is available to assist you in making technology decisions for the employees in your area or department.
Administrative Computing Coordinators work with OIT to provide technology support to Auburn University departments and organizations. Most units at Auburn University are represented by a specific computing coordinator. Click here to see a list of the ACCs.
The Office of Information Technology (OIT) had its earliest beginnings in 1982 when a User Services Consulting Office was established in Haley Center. At that time, mainframe computers were widely used, five batch stations with operators existed, and Production Control provided data entry and test scoring services. In 1983, the unit was named the Division of University Computing (DUC). Over the years, there have been many software and hardware changes in an effort to keep up with constantly changing technology. As technology changed, the unit's name also changed and DUC became the Office of Information Technology (OIT).
The Office of Information Technology reports to the Office of the Provost. OIT provides centralized computing services and resources to the Auburn University community.
OIT provides a variety of services for faculty, staff, and students of the university. These services include user support through the OIT HelpDesk, software licensing and a leasing program for departments, audio and video production, various system accounts, training and consulting, server space, and much more. OIT also provides public computing labs in various campus locations. The Office of Information Technology strives to meet the technology needs of the Auburn University community in a courteous, timely, and efficient manner.
The OIT Building is located at 300 Lem Morrison Drive.
