ResNet and the Student Technology Conference

The Student Technology Conference is the premier event for those interested in learning more about student technologies in academic institutions. Held annually at different colleges and universities across the US, Canada, and beyond, the conference brings together administrators, technologists, and specialists from over 150 academic institutions.

With the advancement of technology, academic institutions are transforming the way students learn and live on campus. From immersive learning experiences to academic support, colleges and universities worldwide are leveraging technology to enhance the student experience.

Through lively discussions on planning, implementation, and support of student technologies, attendees stay up-to-date with the latest trends and best practices in this rapidly evolving field. With opportunities for networking and collaboration, participants choose to stay on campus and engage with peers in the industry.

Founded in 1992, ResNet STC continues to be a leading platform for sharing knowledge, best practices, and emerging trends in the field. We are committed to advancing higher education technologies and services to prepare students for success in the digital age. Join us in our mission to improve the technology landscape in academia and enhance the student experience.

ResNet presents the annual Student Technology Conference in mid-to-late June. Each year, a different higher education institution hosts the conference on their campus. In 2019, ResNet celebrated its 26th in-person conference! The 2023 Conference will be hosted by University of California- Santa Cruz!
