Oxford College Information Technology

The Oxford College Information Technology team—we’re called OCIT—creates a vibrant technology environment for our students, faculty and staff. While we embrace our small liberal arts college environment, Oxford links with Emory University’s vast network of resources.

What to expect around campus

We’re a wireless campus. You’ll have access to multiple high-speed network connections in your residence hall room and almost everywhere on campus—indoor or out.

Our computer labs provide advanced technology resources and consulting. We can assist you with:

  • video editing
  • DVD production
  • text/graphics scanning
  • presentation creation/rehearsal
  • web page creation
  • 3-D printing and scanning 

While at Oxford, you may install the MS Office Suite (including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote) onto five different devices. We also offer EaglePrint installers and antivirus software for download.

What to expect in class

We equip our classrooms with multimedia equipment and software to make learning more interactive. From using virtual reality in biology labs to digitally enhancing student research papers, OCIT partners with faculty to enrich the learning experience.

At Oxford we use Canvas as our learning management system. Faculty and students can share, discuss and collaborate using discussion boards, live video and chat. You can access online library course reserves and online articles or books linked by your professors. Using the calendar feature and mobile Canvas app, you can receive alerts for assignment due dates, new grade postings and class announcements.

It’s all fun and games

Whether you need a spot to go over the latest project with your classmates or test your gaming skills, the Humanities Hotspot is the place to go. The Hotspot, located in Humanities Hall, is where you can test-drive the latest technology at Oxford. Grab a cup of coffee and use our communal collaboration space or enjoy our modern gaming center with full HD TV and a virtual-reality headset system.
