About Fordham IT

In support of the University's mission, the Fordham IT organization provides a wide range of information technology services and resources to support and engage students, faculty and staff. We maintain an environment that gives the community easy access to the information technology needed for learning, teaching, research and administration.

Our passion and enthusiasm is infused with the spirit of the University’s commitment to provide high quality learning that shapes the intellectual, moral, and spiritual formation of our students. To that end, Fordham IT defines its efforts by three broad actions: To provide ongoing, 24/7/365 support of our current technology services and resources; to transform our technologies with upgrades, expansions, and additions in anticipation of and response to changes in the technology landscape; and to provide innovative technology solutions that meet the diverse needs of the entire Fordham community.
