Welcome to the NCAT, St. Lawrence University’s state-of-the-art, interdisciplinary arts technology facility. Located in the Noble Center, the NCAT exists for two reasons: it meets the technological needs of the arts departments in teaching and learning; and it serves as a hub for collaborative, interdisciplinary efforts — both within the arts and across campus. The NCAT staff works with faculty members to coordinate the necessary facilities, equipment, and training to explore the intersections among digital technologies and the arts.

April 1st, 2015 | Chris

3dpizzaThe Newell Center for Arts Technology and Dining Services are pleased to announce a new initiative in 3D-printed food. This new partnership will facilitate the installation of special 3D printers in eight of the residence halls later this semester; these stations will initially print pizzas, with fatbags available soon after. A wider selection of menu items will be added by the beginning of the Fall Semester 2015. “Dude, this is going to be so sweet,” said NCAT Director Dr. Christopher Watts. “The munchies are a thing of the past.”

March 31st, 2015 | Jo

Password expiration date

You can change your password there at any time as well.

Mac Users: Once you have changed your password and log in to a computer that you have used before, you may be prompted to update or start a new keychain. Update will preserve any other saved password data (like website logins) you may have on that machine, but either choice will prompt you for a password. It is looking for the old password so it can update the keychain with the new password.
