Through our campus agreement with Microsoft, Dunwoody provides Office 365 licenses for all students and employees, available through LaunchPad.

At no additional cost, benefits of the software include:

  • Install on up to five compatible PCs and Macs, plus five tablets
  • 1TB of storage with OneDrive for automatic device syncing
  • Create, organize, and collaborate anytime, on your computer, tablet, or phone
  • Enjoy access to the latest versions of Office applications, features, and services
  • Use the same programs across all of your personal devices to ensure full file fidelity

On-Campus Printing

Dunwoody provides a secure and convenient way to print called Dunwoody Pharos. This printing system allows you to use your ID badge to authenticate to print devices and release jobs for printing. You will be able to print to any device that is available for general use, and at this time, there is no direct charge for printing.

IT is responsible for maintaining this system and monitors the printers for errors. Contact the IT Service Desk if you have problems retrieving print jobs. If a printer is malfunctioning, you should notify the IT Service Desk and use another printer on campus.

Staff.Dunwoody

Dunwoody’s Intranet site, Staff.Dunwoody, is where you will find information about the College and where you go to share documents. You can access it through Launchpad or at https://staff.dunwoody.edu. Assistance for Staff.Dunwoody is available at the IT Service Desk.

IIS (Integrated Information System) Reports
