Technology at NU

The Information Technology Department is also available to assist any student who needs help getting their technology set up.  You can also get free software or cheap deals because you are student.  They can even help fix your computer if there is a problem.  They are located in the Barton building.  You can also email them at help@northwestu.edu or call them at 425-889-5310.
