Computing for New Students

WE WELCOME YOU (and your computer!) TO DARTMOUTH.

Without a doubt, setting-up your personal computer will be one of the most important things you do upon arriving at Dartmouth. Luckily, we have amazing consultants who will assist you in configuring your computer to Dartmouth's systems and downloading necessary applications, and who will introduce you to the wealth of online resources available to you from Dartmouth.

Look for the Technology Set-Up and Services session that

  • corresponds to your Dartmouth Outing Club First-Year Trip RETURN or
  • corresponds to your early Orientation program, or
  • takes place on Wednesday, September 9 when you arrive at Dartmouth and move-in to the residence halls.

You should only attend one session.

REMEMBER: Bring your laptop to this session. Make sure it is unpacked, turned on and ready to go! During your Technology Set-Up and Services session, you will configure your computer for the network, and get the general software installed that you'll need for your academic work at Dartmouth.

Where do I get my computer?

The Computer Store is located in the "lower level" of McNutt Hall.

Hours: Mon-Fri, 8:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.

"Help!" (What if I need help with my computer once I have attended the session?)

The IT Service Desk (Help Desk) is here to help with any of your technology questions or problems! Computers, phones, software, TV, cables, printers, etc. Don't hesitate to contact us if you have a question.

Location = 178J Berry Library

Hours: Mon-Fri, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

You can reach the Help Desk via e-mail at help@dartmouth.edu, via phone at 603/646-2999 or stop by and see them in Berry Library.

I'm so excited! When is my Technology Set-Up and Services session?

Check out the list below!

If you are participating in International Student Orientation or FYSEP, please attend with that program, not your Trip. Check with your program or mentors for more information.

Green Key Society and the Orientation Team will also be able to help you find your Technology Set-Up and Services session.

Contact New Student Orientation if you have questions! Thanks!
