Information Technology Services Centre (ITSC) strives to provide state-of-the-art Information Technology (IT) support for Lingnan University to achieve its goal of becoming a liberal arts university of international standing. In order to achieve this mission, ITSC has the following goals:
- To provide an IT infrastructure that is sufficient in capacity, highly reliable and cost-effective for all IT applications at Lingnan.
The major components of this IT infrastructure include the Campus Network, servers and PCs, computer labs and multimedia lecture theatres and lecture rooms. These components are to be maintained to meet the administrative and academic computing needs of the University with a high degree of reliability and cost-effectiveness.

An Enterprise Application & Projects Section (EAPS) is being developed to facilitate the integration of information from student records, human resources, finance, alumni/development, courseware, Portal and email, enabling ongoing business process re-engineering of existing operational procedures and practices. Efficient operation and effective decision making are expected for all administrative units of the University as a result of the EAPS implementation.
