Whether you live on campus, commute or are studying abroad, the IT staff members are here to serve you: from answering technology questions or maintaining lab computers to making it possible for you to register for courses and view your grades online.

Email and Google Workspace

Every Transylvania student is given a Google Workspace email address. This email address is used for communication between students, faculty, and university staff and can be accessed anywhere. Your Transy Google Workspace account also has access to Google Drive, Docs, Calendar, and Sites so you can use these free tools for your coursework and any other needs. New students will receive an email from the Office of Admissions with instructions to set up the MyTransy account, which utilizes Multi-Factor Authentication for the security and privacy of each user.

There are nearly 100 computers available in academic labs for students to use, along with printers for your printing needs. Students who bring personal computers with wired or wireless capabilities may connect to the university network from their residence halls and have access to the internet.
