Accounts for Students
All students receive a Moravian University NetID account that provides access to Gmail, AMOS (Moravian’s student portal), and Canvas, the online Learning Management System (LMS). Through the campus network, you will have access to the Internet, black-and-white and color printing, and library- and course-related software.
Laptops and Tablets
Each incoming Moravian University student receives a MacBook Pro laptop and iPad as part of enrollment. Information Technology (IT) staff will assist if needed with the setup of MacBook Pro and iPad devices. First-Year Writing Seminar faculty advisors will also integrate training into their courses.
There is a pre-installed app on each MacBook called “Self Service,” which is a portal for downloading software and accessing campus resources. It features software options for students to download such as Office 365 (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, version 2016), Adobe Creative Cloud, SPSS, and signature Apple software (Pages, Keynote, Numbers, GarageBand, iMovie).
During each semester, students can get their MacBook repaired or serviced. IT Help Desk technicians can help triage and troubleshoot technical issues with the Apple devices, but all physical repairs will be done through Apple. MacBooks and iPads come with the AppleCare+ warranty that covers hardware and software. Accidental damage such as liquid spills and broken screens is not covered by AppleCare. Many homeowner’s insurance policies will cover a computer for use at school, so check with the insurance carrier for specifics. Consider an extended warranty, since many warranties expire at different terms.
Residence hall rooms have both hard-wired and wireless network connections to access the Internet and the University’s SSO (single sign-on a.k.a. Okta) where you can access AMOS (Access Moravian Online Services) and Canvas.
Windows and Macintosh computer labs are available on the Main Street (North) Campus and Hurd (South) Campus, day or night. Black-and-white and color printers, are available on both North and South Campus, specifically located in the library, the HUB, PPHAC, and The HILL.
