Technical Services and Support

The Tech Commons supports most Biola technology like computers, wireless networking, Google applications, printing, and more. Staff and faculty that need assistance with their Biola owned computers can bring them to Tech Commons.

Computers in the Library

The Windows and Mac desktop computers in the Library are available for staff, faculty, students, and alumni to use with a NetID and password.
