On-Campus Resources

Saint Louis University - Madrid provides computing equipment and access to networks in order to further the academic work of students.

In addition to accessing PCs/Windows 10, scanners and printers in the on-campus computer laboratories, our students can bring their own computer and use the wireless network available on campus.

New students are encouraged to complete an orientation session before using the available equipment at their disposal. The IT orientation session schedule is part of the orientation packet provided by Student Life.

Student Accounts and Personal Folders

To use SLU-Madrid public computers, you need a username and password. Your username is usually made up of your last name and the first letter of your first name. Your initial password is your banner ID number. You will be asked to change it immediately. If you do not set up a password, your account will be disabled. It should also be noted that although the username and initial password are the same as for your MySLU account, they are unrelated systems, so changing a password on one will not result in it being changed on the other.

To access your files from any of our computers, use your personal folder (Z drive).

Google Drive is included as part of your mySLU services and can be used for additional online storage space. It can be accessed from your mySLU tools or directly from the Gmail interface.

Student computer accounts are provisioned at the time of the student orientation session. If you did not register before orientation, you will have to request an account directly from ITS by contacting support-madrid@slu.edu.

Printing Facilities and Print Quota

You are assigned your entire printing quota at the beginning of the semester. It’s your responsibility to manage your printing needs for the whole semester. If your print quota runs out, you may purchase blocks of 50 pages for 5 euros in the Finance Office.

Laboratory Admission Policy

Access to the laboratory facilities is limited to members of the SLU university community. Students should identify themselves on entering by showing a current SLU-Madrid identification card. Student ID cards should be kept on display while a PC is being used.

Students are generally allowed to use any lab, as long as there are no classes being held in it. Please check the timetables posted weekly on the notice boards next to the labs before entering the room. Please leave the room if asked to do so by a professor or a lab coordinator.
