About Us

Under the leadership of Chief Information Officer Steve Hess, University Information Technology (UIT) strives to provide stable, dependable, and secure IT access for students, faculty, staff, clinicians, patients, and researchers. As the central IT service provider for campus, UIT is responsible for many of the University of Utah's most critical common IT resources including the campus network; the Campus Information Services (CIS) portal; UMail, telephone, and online collaboration services;  information security; software licensing; and a host of other systems and applications. Research/high performance computing and teaching/learning technologies also have reporting relationships to the UIT organization.

In addition to managing these important services, UIT also works with other departments across the University to ensure each area has the resources it needs to fulfill its mission.
