Technology Facilities

Projection Classrooms, Classroom Computer Labs & Printers

  • To reserve classrooms, contact the Registrar's office at x2154

  • All computers are connected to the campus Network.

  • All computers (Macs and PCs) are capable of DVD playback and CD recording. Software for those functions is also included.

  • Faculty are reminded to please leave all classroom computers on when  not being used.  Please be sure to log off computers when you are done  using them, but do not shut them down.  Maintenance is frequently performed remotely.  This necessitates that the computers be on.  Most  computers are scheduled to go off automatically at the end of the day  and come on automatically in the morning.

Software Requests

Advance notification for software installation requests for podium computers in all of our Projection Classrooms and all Computer Labs is now required. Requests should include those for new software, updates/upgrades to existing software, or settings changes to the existing software and/or the operating system. Additionally, the purchase of any new software must be done in coordination with CTS to ensure proper license control and compatibility with existing systems. CTS reserves the right to reject any software purchased without its involvement.

All requests must be made directly to the CTS Helpdesk at x2083 or e-mail helpdesk@potsdam.edu on or before the following dates:

  • Summer/Fall Semesters - March 15

  • Winterim/Spring Semesters - October 15

Requests made after these dates will be evaluated for feasibility and practicality, given time constraints and other support concerns. If you have any questions, please contact the CTS Helpdesk.

Internet Only Kiosks

Several public/departmental areas on campus have kiosks available for use. While each are tailored to a specific area, all have the following in common:

  • No printing is available.  

  • They are web browsers only.  

  • No data is kept/stored on them.  

These areas are perfect for guests to check web based email, look up departments/people using the on-line directories, and check course schedules.
