ITS keeps students connected!

Manchester University ITSInformation Technology Services (ITS) gets students connected – whether it's wired network access or WiFi for computers, email accounts, or telephones and cable TV in residence halls.

Not bringing a computer to campus? ITS supports two major computer labs, several academic department labs and labs in each resident hall – more than 200 student-accessible PCs in all, many available into the wee hours of the morning.

Students can contact ITS for great deals on software, too, at special academic discounts.

Read more about ITS support and contact information, or visit the ITS web pages for a complete rundown of services.

Cut the hassle –pay tuition, fees online!

Paying your tuition bill just got a little easier with Manchester’s new online tuition and fee payment option. Now, you can make a payment right from your computer anytime and print your own receipt. Student Financial Services welcomes payments by credit card or e-check online from the Student Financial Services website.

At Manchester, we are keeping close watch of the spread of H1N1 (Swine Flu) and are following state and national guidelines to reduce exposure to our College community.

We’ve had no suspected cases, but will remain watchful as our students begin to return for a new school year in late August.

It is important that the College and our families take this threat seriously. Each one of us can make a difference in protecting against the spread of this flu, or any flu. At home as well as at the College, we must all practice the “3 Cs” all the time:

  • Clean our hands often
  • Cover our coughs and sneezes
  • Contain our germs by staying at home if we are sick

Manchester College has a plan if H1N1 finds its way to our campus. Our physician and I have attended state seminars on H1N1.

I’ll keep you posted on the Health Services website, but don’t hesitate to contact me at or 260-982-5306. Meanwhile, here are two important, and very informative, links to H1N1 influenza:

Centers for Disease Control
Indiana State Department of Health
