Information Technology (IT) is the division of The Graduate Center responsible for voice, video, and data systems and services. The mission of this unit is to promote, facilitate, and support the effective use of technology in the learning process, in instruction and research, and in processing and accessing institutional information.
IT services and resources provided to students include but are not limited to network ac- counts and email accounts, remote access to Graduate Center computing resources, Help Desk support and assistance, the GC Blackboard environment for online learning (accessible via the CUNY portal), a WordPress site for hosting web pages, and a video streaming service. IT provides and maintains a sizable collection of Windows and Mac computing platforms as well as network printers and desktop scanners in the library, in the Ph.D. program suites, and in a variety of other student spaces. High-speed wireless access is available throughout the building.
The Graduate Center desktop computers are configured with an extensive software suite to support a breadth of student activities; many of these software titles are also available to students remotely from both PC and Mac platforms. Graduate Center network accounts also provide access to a host of online library databases. The Graduate Center IT website houses a great deal of information, including a comprehensive knowledge base. We encourage all students to visit the IT website Information Technology | CUNY Graduate Center to learn more about the resources and services available to you.
