The university’s Student Technology Center website recently had a facelift.

The new website provides the campus community with easy-to-find contact information, features, hours and equipment checkout. It also highlights new tech center offerings, such as virtual reality headsets, a plotter printer, a green room and more. Improvements to the site include updated policies on late fees and equipment checkouts, user-friendly navigation, and a new area to feature upcoming events.

“We wanted visitors to the site to know that the Student Technology Center is a flagship facility of IT Services,” Stacy Crotser, director of support services, said. “The new website keeps the format, branding and navigation of an official university site, while combining the fresh feel and friendly approach of the former site.”

Completed as a collaborative effort between tech center staff and the IT Services communication team, the Student Technology Center website is now hosted in OmniUpdate (OU), which is the U of A’s web platform for official websites. OU offers advanced web development yet is easy to use. The web content can be managed by student employees at the Student Technology Center.

Deidra Payne, an employee at the tech center, contributed to the website’s improvements.

“Our goal with the new website was to make the information our patrons are looking for readily available and promote awareness of the variety of services we provide to students, faculty and staff,” Payne said. “We’re excited to increase the opportunities for students to use the tech center, whether it’s for gaming, digital media or making friendships.”

The Student Technology Center is open six days a week and is located on the third floor of the Arkansas Union, near the food court. The facility features a digital media lab, project workstations, a gaming lounge with the latest generation of consoles, equipment checkouts, recording studios and a green screen room for video and streaming.
