Stanford IT Services: What We Do

IT Services manages the University’s central information technology infrastructure and provides hundreds of services and applications for use in academic and business activities. Support is provided in four layers:

  • Participation and client-focused leadership in institutional IT planning, including strategies for data center expansion, centrally managed storage and backup, and business continuity and disaster recovery.
  • Applications and services for departments and end-users, from email and calendaring, to wireless connectivity and web authentication, to Windows and Linux server hosting — all supported by a front-line help desk, contract-support consultants, online self-help, and training.
  • Applications and services that support other campus service providers, including the help desk, change management, and network registration systems.
  • A communications and collaboration infrastructure robust enough to support advanced network, voice, and web-based services.
