    Technology Requirements for Incoming Students

    We recommend that the computer you use for your coursework meet a list of minimum specifications.

    • (Chromebooks, iPads, tablets, and netbooks do not run all necessary academic applications.)

  • Keeping computers in good working order and notifying their instructor(s) when computer issues interfere with their ability to participate fully in course activities.
  • Having Admin rights on their computers for software installs and the ability to control settings on their computers
  • Having access to broadband internet connection. We do not recommend relying on public, shared, or business internet access, as these networks may not permit access to certain course materials or systems due to security settings or reliability concerns.
  • Wireless is available throughout campus
  • Computers and printers are available in all academic buildings. Students get allocated print credits each semester. Additional print credits can be purchased if needed.

Computer Labs and Printers
Computers and printers are available 24 x7 in all residence halls. Wireless printers are not permitted on campus as they can have a negative impact on the campus wireless network. However, students can set up local USB connections to personal printers.

Cable TV
Students who live on campus have one cable television connection in each room, provided by Direct TV. Students can use either a digital or analog TV. HBO GO is available to all students currently living in residence halls. No student-owned wireless access points are allowed on the network
Devices that use peer to peer connection, like Google Chromecast, are not compatible with our network and will not work.

  • McGlynn Gift

    Dedicated to a Generous Supporter

    Burton J. McGlynn, a trustee emeritus of St. Catherine, made two extraordinarily generous charitable gifts to the school, specifically for computer technology. His pace-setting investments in technology launched the University toward excellence in educational technology and changed the way we teach, work and learn. The McGlynn Computer and Technology Center was dedicated March 2, 1999.

    Thank you, Burton J. McGlynn and the McGlynn Family.
