Technical Operations & Support

The Information Technology (IT) department maintains the servers and infrastructure that are used for most applications and technical services at the University of St. Thomas. The IT department is comprised of 43 people - divided into five support teams; Business Intelligence, Enterprise Systems Services, IT Operations, Technical Process Analysts, and Web Services.

IT supports over 400 servers running 90+ academic and administrative applications. Equipment we use to support the campus community is housed in two data centers, one on the St. Paul campus and one on the Minneapolis campus.  IT staff also develop and support a large portfolio of web applications and websites used by the university to achieve its mission.  Whether you're sending an email, working on an assignment in Blackboard, or even just logging into a computer, odds are you're interacting with one of the servers or systems IT maintains.  And, if you’re looking for assistance in developing new business analytics, processes, or technologies, IT staff have the expertise to help guide your project to a successful outcome.
