The Information Technology Support Services (ITSS) division provides a wide variety of technology services to the College, as well as limited service to the Colorado Community College System and other State entities. Our services span desktop-to-server-to-mainframe computing, networks, telecommunications, Internet connectivity, administrative and academic systems, security, instructional technology, computer labs, plus many support services.

ITSS works with College divisions and departments to develop and implement new systems and technologies. At the same time, we provide quality service and support to all members of the College community.

ITSS provides current students with an account on the instructional network and an e-mail address accessible via the Internet.

Classroom and lab computers are networked with access to the Internet and the instructional network. Each full service campus has its own local area network (LAN). All campus LANs are connected via high-speed connections to provide students, faculty, and staff with the ability to seamlessly access data from any campus. Regular backups are performed to ensure that coursework and other data are recoverable in the event of a disaster.

ITSS computer labs at the Centennial, the Downtown Studio, Rampart Range, and Falcon campuses are available to students, faculty, and staff. ITSS computer labs are also open evenings and weekends to provide students with extended access to technology resources. Hours of operation vary by semester and by campus, so please call for current lab hours or visit www.ppcc.edu/student.

Lab staff is available to assist students, faculty, and staff with questions and/or problems in the computer labs. Students seeking tutoring services should contact the Learning Assistance Center/Tutoring at 719-502-3444.
