The Cougar Care Network provides information, connection to resources, advocacy and support for students dealing with personal, academic, financial or other challenges. Call (760) 750-7627 or email for more information.

Computer Lab

The University Student Union and IITS have partnered to establish a computer lab in the USU Ballroom and Meeting Rooms for students who need access to computers, printing services, power and/or Wi-Fi. The USU computer lab is open from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday-Friday on a first-come, first-served basis.

Students will use the campus app to check into the lab and receive an assigned station. The process is as easy as opening up the app and scanning their digital ID when they arrive. The app also has an “On Campus” button that will show available on-campus services, including the number of computers available in the USU so that students will know if there are open stations before arriving.

Students can call the USU at 760-750-7450 during the lab’s operating hours with questions or leave a message after hours. Students needing support for hardware issues (computer, webcam, etc.) or with any software tools (Cougar Courses, Zoom, etc.), should visit the IITS For You Student webpage. For technology needs (laptops, webcams, wireless hotspots, etc.), please visit the IITS For You Appointment webpage.
