Information Technologies

A wide variety of technology resources are made available to students attending CCU. Enrolled students may access the Technical Support website on the My CCU portal to view instructions on how to utilize technology at CCU as well as the policies and procedures that govern its use.

Network Access

Public use computers at the Lakewood campus are available in the Student Union, Beckman Center, Dining Commons, Library, and several public use computer labs, including a 24-hour computer lab. Wireless network connectivity is available in all buildings and common areas on the Lakewood campus as well as the regional centers. In addition, each main campus residence hall bedroom provides wired high-speed network connectivity for students who provide their own computers. All public use computers are connected to the Internet and contain a variety of software.

Digital Services

Students have access to a variety of digital services: CCU email powered by Google and network printing in computer labs. In addition, web-enabled self-service applications (i.e., WebAdvisor, Student Planning, Self-Service Finance) allow students to view grades and unofficial transcripts, register for courses, view billing statements, check chapel attendance records, view account balances, and update contact information.

Student Computing

Information Security is very important to Colorado Christian University, as is keeping personal student information private and secure. As such, all students are required to run up-to-date anti-virus and anti-spyware software when connecting their equipment to any of CCU’s digital resources. Students should set up automatic operating system software updates on any computer connecting to CCU’s network. It is highly recommended that students refrain from using peer-to-peer file sharing software as it is a common gateway for malware, spyware, Trojans and viruses.

Classroom Technology

Each classroom at CCU is equipped with a computer, DVD/VCR, sound system and overhead projector. Science labs also include document cameras for showing live experiments on the overhead projector. Technology resources in the classrooms are frequently used by faculty and are available to students for in-class presentations.

Technical Support for Student Computers

CCU technicians are available to help each student connect to the CCU network. In addition, students can bring their computers to CCU Technical Support for a free analysis and consultation on anti-virus and anti-spyware solutions. If additional repair or a system restore/rebuild is required, these services are offered at prices significantly lower than the going market rate. Feel free to call CCU Technical Support at 303-963-3444 to schedule an appointment, or email Technical Support’s hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 7:30am to 6:30pm.
