The ITS Help Desk installs equipment and provides technical support
for hardware, software, networks and cabling throughout the college.
We answer questions on a wide spectrum of topics ranging from mainframes
to desktop computers; IBM compatibles to Apple Macintosh’s; and

will assist users in resolving their computing problems, or when
appropriate, serve as a liaison to other organizations or campus
resources such as CUNY Computing, BC Network Management, and BC
