Network and Printing

Network File Storage

St. Olaf provides networked storage space for use by students, faculty, and staff. This storage space is available from all college-owned computers on campus. Additionally, users can access their files from their personal computers on and off campus.

Residence Hall Networks

Wired or wireless access is available in every Residence Hall.

VPN: Off-Campus Network Access

St. Olaf IT maintains a virtual private network (VPN) for use by college faculty, staff and students. A VPN allows computers off campus (e.g. at your home) to securely connect to the St. Olaf network and function as if it was on campus. It allows access to server files, applications, and library resources that are restricted to on campus users.

Wireless Networks – eduroam

St. Olaf users are strongly encouraged to use the eduroam’ wireless network. This wireless network is secured, encrypted and provides access to the Internet and all St. Olaf computing resources.


St. Olaf provides network laser printers for academic uses in most public labs.
