Falvey welcomed University Information Technologies’ (UNIT) TechZone on Thursday, June 14, on the library’s first floor. Previously located in room 101 of Vasey Hall, UNIT is a “centralized IT team…dedicated to providing the university community with comprehensive IT services and solutions which includes providing and maintaining the university-wide computing infrastructure for academic and administrative use.”
Permanently closing the TechZone in Vasey Hall, UNIT will now support the university community from Falvey; a move that Luisa Cywinski, Director of Access Services, happily welcomes. “We’re thrilled to have UNIT in the Library,” she says. “With over 600,000 people using the library each year, it makes perfect sense to relocate the UNIT TechZone to a more centrally located building like Falvey. UNIT staff will continue to serve the overall computing needs of the Villanova community, and they will collaborate with Falvey staff to provide enhanced support for the printers and computers used by library patrons. It’s a win-win situation.”
Bilal Rahim, Client Technologies Analyst; UNIT – Technology Support Services, shares Cywinski’s excitement, “We are looking forward to helping our Villanova students, staff and faculty leverage technology at the new TechZone@Falvey.”
As UNIT shared on their Facebook page, the TechZone@Falvey will continue to provide the following services for students, faculty and staff: “WIFI connectivity (mobile, laptop, tablet…), IT-related support (myNova, O365, Email, Blackboard…), software support/hardware recommendations, virus and malware remediation, VPrint and mobile printing, lab support and charging technology, residential networking support and password assistance.”
Throughout the remainder of the summer, the TechZone@Falvey will remain open Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. For more information and additional assistance please visit UNIT online, by phone (610-519-7777) or Email. You can also find UNIT on Twitter and Facebook.
