Technology That Keeps You Totally Connected

The last thing you need to worry about on campus is being connected! We’ve got you covered with a full-service tech team dedicated to keeping our campus data network humming.

Every building on campus and all public spaces, including our main plaza, has a wireless connection with easy access from laptops, tablets, smart phones and other portable devices with compatible wireless cards.

When you enroll you’ll be given a College of Saint Mary email address and access to MyCSM, the College intranet where you can access schedules, grades and more.

To help make the learning experience more rich and convenient, College of Saint Mary offers courses in classrooms, online and a “hybrid” blend of both, depending on how your professor determines the learning is best imparted.

Many professors record their lectures so that you can access them later, viewing the lecture itself and the electronic presentations that were shown in the classroom to support the lecture. We were the first university in Nebraska to use this lecture capture system to aid in our students’ learning.


All CSM computers have Microsoft Windows, Office and Security.
