Many of the services available for you to use on campus require an internet connection. We recommend that you take advantage of Adelphi’s partnership with Eduroam, a wireless provider that allows for seamless wireless on many college campuses worldwide.

With eCampus you can:
On your MyeCampus homepage you can customize settings so that your frequently used services appear in your Favorites.
These features, along with many others are available to make things easier for you, the students. If you can’t find your course on Moodle, talk to your professor to see if they are making the class available on Moodle. If you have problems with either service you can contact the IT Help Desk for further assistance.
AU2go is one of Adelphi’s mobile apps, and it is the best way to access anything Adelphi from your smartphone or tablet.

3D printing is an exciting new technology that allows people to create items in 3D from a digital file. Here at Adelphi, all students have access to the 3D Studio in Swirbul Library, where they can work with staff members to model, edit and create 3D pieces and bring their ideas to life.
If 3D printing sounds intimidating to you, don’t worry at all. We offer workshops throughout the semester that will allow anyone, no matter your experience with 3D printing, to learn more about this exciting new technology. You can even schedule an individual appointment to work with someone if the next available workshop date is too far away.
Come by the 3D Studio in Swirbul Library whenever you get the chance to experience 3D printing firsthand.
