  • Having a general issue in a classroom?

    • Here at CSUSM we believe that instruction is paramount and should always be accommodated regardless of the circumstances. For this reason we believe in always doing whatever it takes to ensure the show goes on even when we have critical issues. Our solutions are designed to give students and faculty the flexibility to continue on with a class in the event of technical issues or hardware failure. Labtechs are prepared to listen and understand the challenges our students and faculty encounter are prepared to deploy spare systems in place or move a classroom to a working room to get instruction back on schedule. Any Campus patron having trouble in a classroom should never hesitate to dial our class tech hotline, or email to report any issues in the classroom.
