2017 staff of the CCIT Technology Support Center

As the new fall semester starts, our goal in Information and Technology Solutions (ITS) is to offer the highest level of service while providing a safe and healthy environment for all. Following the guidelines of the University and the public health recommendations, we look forward to being able to offer modified in-person support and assisting everyone in having a successful return to Campus.

To achieve this goal – and comply with current university requirements and public health recommendations – our on-campus IT support services will be modified for fall 2021.  While in-person options are available this semester, we have measures in place to ensure that students and employees can get the help they need when they need it.

What’s new with the MSC?

We have shifted the MSC support and now offer phone and chat to get support you need.  Our phone number has not changed.  Feel free to give us a call during business hours at 303.384.2345.   

You will find Blaster has been made into a bot to help with chat support.  BlasterBot is available 24/7 to answer questions and submit help requests.  During MSC hours of operation, BlasterBot also facilitates live chat support.  

If you need in person support we can setup an appointment to meet you.  Here is the link to request in person service.
