The Saint Xavier University Information Technology Department provides an effective and efficient information technology environment by continuously improving the quality of technical services to enhance teaching and learning and to support University administrative functions.


Self-Service, found in the mySXU portal, offers a variety of self-service functions, including: search for classes, registration, schedule changes, make a payment, check financial aid and account status, check academic history and grades and petition for graduation.

Anyone can search for classes using Self-Service. Some features of Self-Service require a netID and a password that are given to you when you become an admitted student. For the initial registration, all undergraduate students and all graduate students in the Education Division or the College of Nursing, Health Sciences and Business must have the electronic approval of their advisors. Anyone applying to SXU can retrieve financial aid award information and admit status via Self-Service using assigned login information.


Each registered student receives an SXU email account which requires a University netID and password to access. This information is initially sent to all newly registered students via their personal email address of record. Students are encouraged to use this resource because the University communicates important information through this channel. If you did not receive your netID and password, or if you have questions about accessing your SXU email, please contact The Hub or call 773-298-HELP (4357). You are welcome to stop by the Warde Academic Center for assistance. All faculty, staff, and students must adhere to the Acceptable Use of Technology policy.

Software, Internet and Printer Access

Windows and Mac OS computers, networked printers and Internet access are available in the technology labs. Students use their netIDs and passwords to access lab computers, software applications, the Internet and the printers.

Printing documents in the labs requires an SXU identification card (Cougar Card) with sufficient print funds. Instructions for accessing these services can be viewed on mySXU.

There are various technology labs on the Chicago campus, some of which are dedicated to classroom instruction. The University also has computers on wheels that can convert any classroom into a technology lab.

The Hub - Schedule

The Hub is the first point of contact for technology assistance. Support is available during business hours, and trained staff can help with your campus computer, printer, network connections and access questions.
