About ITS

Information Technology Services (ITS) enables the IT resources used by LSU students, staff, and faculty. ITS’s divisions include the Office of the Chief Information Officer,  LONI - the Louisiana Optical Network Initiative, LOUIS – the Louisiana Library Network, User Support & Student IT Enablement, University Information Systems, and University Networking & Infrastructure and High Performance Computing. ITS’s nearly 170 staff members create and maintain vital university systems like course registration and payroll; provide network , wireless and telephone connectivity campus-wide; house the computational resources used by many LSU researchers; staff and maintain student computing labs; and provide direct support to the thousands of computer users here at LSU. Through engagement with the LSU community and the community’s creation of the Flagship IT Strategy, LSU ITS is more than actively responding to the evolving technical needs and challenges of LSU.


Information Technology Services provides technology infrastructure and services that advance teaching and learning, enable research, enrich the student IT experience, and effectively manage institutional information, in support of LSU’s pursuit of national prominence as Louisiana’s Flagship University.


Within prudent and reasonable resources, and in line with institutional priorities, ITS will provide an environment that features “IT Abundance” … wherein IT is advanced, current, and readily available to support faculty, staff, and students in their achievement of the mission of the institution. ITS will be excellent in providing for IT Abundance in infrastructure and services, not as its own end, but as a way in which the mission of the institution is ultimately served.


We value our most prized resource – the people of ITS who pursue excellence and deliver it in terms of IT infrastructure and services.

We value our relationships with the faculty, students, and staff of LSU – our customers, partners, colleagues, and friends – and thus honor a service culture above all else.

We value the trust placed in us by university administration, the Board of Supervisors, and the Board of Regents, to be efficient and effective in the use of all resources.

We value the security of the technology resources and information entrusted to our care, and will be vigilant in maintaining the integrity of these critical items.


Information Technology Services is located in the Fred C. Frey Computing Services Center. It is on the corner of South Stadium Road and Tower Drive. Measuring 205 by 132 feet, the two-story, 56,000 square feet, brick veneer building is situated next to Choppin and Williams Hall with Knapp Hall to the east. A 30-foot arcade area separates Choppin and the Computing Services Center. The Computing Services Center won the Rose Award for architectural design excellence after construction was finished.

The building is named in memory of Major Fred C. Frey (1891-1980), "Mr. LSU", student, athlete, teacher, counselor, friend "who loved and served LSU so well for such a long time."
