A wide variety of technology resources are made available to students attending CCU. Enrolled students may access the Technical Support website on CCU Connect to view instructions on how to utilize technology at CCU as well as the policies and procedures that govern its use.
Public use computers at the Lakewood campus are available in the Library and Beckman Center. Wireless network connectivity is available in all buildings and common areas, including residential locations and regional centers. In addition, each residential apartment is equipped with high-speed wired ports located in bedrooms and living areas for those students who wish to connect their personal computers.
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., connect.ccu.edu, Self-Service, Online Services, Blackboard) 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.
Information security is very important to CCU, as is keeping personal student information private and secure. As such, all students are required to run up-to-date antivirus and antispyware software when connecting their equipment to any of CCU’s online 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.
Each classroom at CCU is equipped with a computer, DVD/Blu-ray Player, 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 for in-class presentations.
Technical Support for Student Computers
CCU’s Technical Support representatives are available to help each student connect to the CCU network. In addition, students can bring in their computers to Technical Support for a free analysis and consultation on anti-virus and anti-spyware solutions. If additional repairs are required, tech support will attempt to fix it free of charge while staying within the bounds of the device’s warranty. Feel free to call Technical Support at 303-963-3444 to schedule an appointment, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. The hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 7:30 AM to 6:30 PM.
