At Neumont we teach more than technologies, we teach you how to learn. Why?

Learn more about what we are currently teaching on the technology page of the website.
- What kind of laptops do you offer and what software are they loaded with?
Each student purchases a Lenovo ThinkPad laptop prior to beginning classes at Neumont; information will be emailed to you once you have completed your Enrollment Agreement, but you can find basic specs on the Neumont IT website. Your laptop purchase may be rolled into financial aid. These laptops give our students the mobility and power they need to be successful. Students keep their laptops with them all the time, so they have access to this important learning tool whenever faculty find it will assist in instruction.
Our students use an industrial-strength wireless network that allows them to connect to resources from any location on campus. Our wireless network meets the same standards demanded by major corporations in terms of security and availability. Project Groups are issued virtual servers as needed. These servers provide tools like Visual Studio, Java development tools, IIS, and Apache, etc.. Students are able to play with these technologies in a “safe” environment without worrying about disrupting other systems in the “real” environment. These servers also allow students to collaborate with other team members on a central platform.
All students have access to necessary development tools used in their courses or project work like WebSphere, and SQL Server. In addition, they have access through our MSDN Academic Alliance to a wide range of Microsoft software and development tools. Students are also provided with a student license to the latest version of Microsoft Windows and Office, so they are using the industry-standard business software tools from day one.

- What do I do if I’m struggling in a class or I’m homesick?
Neumont is a challenging program. Most students need help at one time or another. Here are a few options:
Speak with a member of the Student Affairs staff — Student Affairs’ primary goal is to support students. We recognize that becoming a programming superstar is not an easy task and that nearly every student needs a bit of help on occasion. We can provide support to help you get back on track.
Every student has a Student Affairs Advocate — someone who is there to support them in good and tough times. Advocates keep an eye on grades and reach out to students who are struggling. Their primary goal is to support you throughout your time at Neumont—to be your “go to” person. They help students problem-solve academic and non-academic issues, transition to college, develop effective study habits, and succeed. Students will meet their Advocate at Orientation (or sooner) and can contact them anytime.
To contact Student Affairs, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Faculty — Our computer science faculty have office hours several times a week. This is a great opportunity for students to get extra help and ask questions. You can also ask questions before, during, and after class.
Free academic coaching (tutoring) — Tutoring is available to all students at no cost. This peer academic coaching (tutoring) is typically available five days per week. Schedules are posted around campus.
- Are there any staff members that can help with housing questions, maintenance issues in my apartment, roommate conflicts, etc.?
Yes. Neumont has Resident Assistants and a full-time staff member who live at our apartment complexes. Between them living so close to students and offering a 24-hour on-call phone number, somebody is always available to help with challenging situations. The Housing Staff also plans community activities and helps shuttle students to-and-from school (morning and afternoon).
If you have questions about the housing program, send an email to email@example.com, or call Corrine Padilla at 801.302.2857.
- How does Neumont assign students to apartments? What if I don’t like my roommates?
Students who move into Neumont housing first complete an application. On that application, they indicate their preferences and personality traits, such as cleanliness and typical bedtime. We use that information to match students with roommates who share these traits.
While we do a pretty good job, we are not perfect. If you do not get along with your roommates or would rather live with other students, you can—based on availability—change apartments.
