Martin Luther College’s Network Services is in charge of all technology and telephone hardware and software on campus. We provide connections in each dorm room for access to the campus network and Internet, printers, computer labs, classroom technology, and much more for the students, faculty, and staff of Martin Luther College.

The Network Services staff welcomes your questions. We are here to help. The help desk is usually manned Monday through Friday from 7:30 am to 4:30 pm and Sunday through Thursday from 7:30 pm to 10:30 pm.

If you are in any computer lab with a blue phone, just pick it up to reach the help desk.

Along with maintaining the network infrastructure, we also provide services directly to students who need help. Here are just a few things we can help you with:

  • Spyware and malware removal
  • Network connections issues
  • Software installation
  • Hardware consultation
  • Document scanning
  • Printing issues
  • Much more …

Follow us on Twitter @mlcnetwork, like us on Facebook, add us to your circles on Google+, or subscribe to our blog, Bits to Bytes, to find out more about what is going on within Network Services along with what changes might be coming in the future as well.

You can find a lot of information in this section of the site, but if you ever have any questions, we are here to help.
