SDSU Information Technology services and resources are provided by various campus IT organizations and therefore, it might be unclear to a user of campus technology, whether faculty, staff, student, or visitor, how to find IT services or how to obtain them.  The intent of this website is to serve as a portal for finding information about IT on campus and the services available.  This site, launched in Feb 2017, will continue to develop more content, information, and references related to IT at SDSU as more IT organizations participate.  IT Services will eventually be organized in a structure as illustrated below.

SDSU faculty and staff may find detail information regarding these services on the SDSU Intranet.
