How will I be able to use CEU IT services?

You will receive a login name and a password in your welcome package at the beginning of the academic year.

On the IT Orientation you will receive information about the core IT services (Office 365 based email and collaboration, printing, wifi), opening hours and locations of the general computer labs and helpdesk offices, mandatory and facultative computer classes, available free computer courses. The second session, the CEU Computer Communication Lecture is a practical addition to the IT Orientation.
