Welcome to Information Technology (IT) Home
The Division of Information Technology (IT) is headed by Mr. David Cantrell, Associate Vice-President for Information Technology and Chief Information Officer.
The goal of IT is to provide cost effective, efficient and reliable access to cutting edge Information Technologies of hardware, software, networking, and telephony for the students, faculty, staff and stakeholders of Florida A&M University.
The Department of Information Technology (IT) provides technology support services for the campus community. IT makes student life on Florida A&M University’s (FAMU) campus easier with user friendly and innovative technology. IT’s interaction with students begins early during the admissions process when they receive their FAMNetID. A student’s FAMNetID is the username they will use throughout their entire student and alumni experience at FAMU. Students use their FAMNetID to access four major systems: FAMMail, iRattler, FAMU Wireless Internet and Blackboard.
Selected Systems Requiring a FAMNetID:
• FAMMail- Stay informed. FAMU’s official method of communication for students operates on Microsoft Office365 cloud based system and Microsoft Exchange 2010 email system for faculty and staff.
• iRattler - Stay in the know. Students use iRattler to access academic records, campus finances, academic planning, enrollment services, and personal account information.
• FAMU Wireless Internet- Stay connected. FAMU Wireless is available campus wide to provide internet service where students need it the most.
• Blackboard - Keep up with your class information, homework assignments and even attend virtual classes.
Additional IT Services:
Our IT Helpdesk is located in the University Commons Suite 104. We strive to assist students with technology-related needs in a convenient and timely manner.
IT provides several information technology kiosks across campus
