Resources For Everyone

Being a student can be challenging.  This is totally normal. WKU acknowledges this and seeks to help you overcome any obstacles to your completing your education.  As a WKU student, you can access the free or very low-cost resources below to improve your situation.  Whether it is a mental health concern, financial difficulties, accessibility issues or IT support that you seek, you will find help at the offices linked in the drop-down menus below.   To the left, you will find several outside of WKU resources that are also free for you.  You may always contact your academic advisor with concerns, as well.

Blackboard Help – You can access Blackboard help here or by calling IT at (270) 745-7000. My rule of thumb is after 5 minutes of struggle, I call IT. You know your own limits

Technology Access – If you do not have broadband or laptop access.  Be aware that some internet companies in our region are offering free broadband access to students during the pandemic. Students who need laptops should contact TopperTech via this request so that they can provide information about our no-cost laptop checkout program.
