Students Services

Computer Lab Time / E-mail

All School of Radiologic Technology students are assigned an e-mail address through the Wheaton Franciscan Information Systems department, utilizing Microsoft Outlook access. Microsoft Outlook allows faculty and staff to communicate with students via e-mail. Students should check their Microsoft Outlook e-mail twice daily for information from the School and Faculty. All official and unofficial School information will be disseminated to students through their School of Radiologic Technology Outlook account.

If requested, a student may be assigned computer lab time. This lab time usually takes place in the hospital library or the Brown Deer campus. Many computer programs are available to the students to review and study from.


All parking is free and monitored by security in assigned parking structures/lots. Parking on the streets is discouraged – park at your own risk. If you are leaving the hospital late in the evening please take advantage of the Security Escort Service. 


The cafeterias offer breakfast, lunch and dinner. As a student you receive the employee discount.


You will be provided a locker for your personal belongings. Please be sure to keep your locker locked at all times. Wheaton is not responsible for the loss of any personal property. At times hospital representatives may find it necessary to inspect lockers. In most cases if your locker must be inspected, it will take place while you and your instructor is present. Only in extreme circumstances will a locker be opened in the absence of the student.

The Learning Link is Wheaton’s Learning Management System (LMS) that provides services such as online education and reporting.

Students may be granted testing accommodations including additional time and/or a distraction free environment for test taking.
