News and IT

The descriptions and links below will provide an overview of Duke's news outlets and information technology resources. For more specific information, please visit the links provided.

Office of Information Technology

The Office of Information Technology is Duke's central provider of computing and communications services for staff and students.  Graduate and Professional students may also get support from their Department or School local IT support when available.  Please visit OIT's special page for NEW Graduate and Professional students, New to Duke.  It includes information on how to choose a computer, lists available site licensed software, NetID, printing on campus, and Tech Tips. (also available in PDF format)
