Academic Support Services

St. Catherine University's Libraries

The libraries on both the St. Paul and Minneapolis campuses serve the research and information needs of the University's students, faculty and staff. Each library provides professional research assistance, computer workstations, comfortable study space and convenient hours. The collections of the libraries include more than 200,000 print and e-books, 65,000 print and online journal subscriptions and multimedia materials that support the academic and research needs of the community. Additionally, the libraries provide access to the collections of five other private college and university libraries in the Twin Cities through membership in the Cooperating Libraries in Consortium (CLIC), as well as nationally and globally through interlibrary loan.

O'Neill Center for Academic Development

The O'Neill Center for Academic Development addresses the diverse academic needs and interests of all students. The professional and student staff provide individual academic support and promote academic achievement through programs, services and facilities offered by the Writing/Reading Center, the Math/Science Center, the Disability Resources Center and Student Mentors.

Computing Services

Computing Services maintains several large general purpose labs and a number of discipline-specific labs on both the St. Paul and Minneapolis campuses; smaller general purpose labs are located in each of the residence halls. Students who live on campus are provided high-speed Internet access through either data ports or wirelessly in their room. Each member of the St. Kate's community, including students, faculty, and staff, are provided with an account that gives them secure access to campus computing resources. This includes an e-mail account using our Google Apps for Education that is available via a web browser, access to our Course Management System, and access to the website where community members may securely access the information they need to be successful at St. Kate's.

Computing Services also provides training and help desk support for students, faculty, and staff on academic and administrative computing issues; this includes assistance with the Microsoft Office suite, Email and other Google Apps for Education services, and the our Course Management System as well as hardware issues. The help desk can be reached at 651-690-6402 or by email or by visiting the web page: or by chat, social media (like, flicker, facebook, twiter, etc.).

The main office for the McGlynn Center for Computing and Technology is located in the Coeur de Catherine Building on the St. Paul campus.
