About OIT

We are here for one reason—to empower our students, faculty, and staff through technology. In the Office of Information Technology, we believe that student success comes through employee success, and we’re focused on supporting our staff in doing what they do best every day.

OIT provides leadership to the Portland State University community in the successful development and application of information technology. Information technology on campus is supported by a strong technical infrastructure that helps the PSU community work smarter, faster, and safer. From supporting student experiences and staff collaboration to helping faculty conduct research and provide great learning experiences, OIT is the technology powerhouse that drives the university.
