    IT Specialists

    IT Support services have moved online

    Following government guidelines, University support staff are working from home. This means that the way you receive support from us is changing. Please have a look at the latest updates on COVID-19 and our guide on studying from home.

    IT Specialists will continue to provide IT support services via remote tools, as the university moves learning and teaching online.

    How to request IT support:

    Please note we may need to remote onto your personal device to provide virtual support, you will need to download TeamViewer.

    IT remote support service is open from 9am to 5pm (Monday to Friday)

    Online Video Conferencing guides

    Your academic support team may at times send you a weblink to join a 1 to 1 tutorial or online class. You don't need any special app or software, just a browser on any PC, Mac or smart device that has a microphone option and preferably, but not necessarily, a webcam so we can see you.

    IT Support provides a range of IT services and resources to students.

    A range of computers are available on all campuses for students to use. These include PCs and Mac computers with a basic set of software such as Microsoft Office, as well as additional specialist software. We have open access areas as well as silent and group study rooms enabling you to work as appropriate.

    Specialist IT staff are available to help you with any computing related queries and services include:

    • Specialist advice and support for students' own personal devices (laptops, tablet devices, mobiles etc.) including Operating System check-ups and updates
    • Specialist software training and workshops for students e.g. SPSS, Adobe products
    • Advice and preparation for large format printing
    • Help and advice with IT purchases

    Software installed in each classroom / open access area

    CCSS provides an installation service in respect of any software currently provided in CCSS-supported classrooms and open access areas. CCSS staff do not usually have any specialist knowledge of the software beyond basic installation and testing of print functions. Normally any training or other support for this software must be arranged with the software supplier or other external company by the school, service or campus support team concerned.
