In the Help Articles section you can find support articles on all of the technologies listed above. If the help article doesn’t help you resolve your issue, the Online Help Desk is available 24/7/365 via Chat or telephone at 860-723-0221. If they are unable to resolve your issue, the Online Help Desk will automatically open an incident with the CSCU IT Services Portal (below).

The CSCU IT Services Portal is the point-of-contact for assistance with any CSCU-provided IT service, including the following –

  • CSCU owned software or hardware either on or off campus (computers, printers, phones, etc.)
  • Classroom AV equipment
  • Networking and telecommunications issues (WAN, LAN, wireless, Cisco phones, Jabber)
  • Issues with Protective Enclave (PE) and related services (Banner INB, secure printing and file shares)
  • Support with security and data protection services (McAfee and Spirion)
  • Requests for new technology services

The IT Services Portal’s Knowledge Base may provide a solution to your issue. If you cannot find a solution, clicking on Get Help (login required) allows you to create an incident to get assistance in resolving your issue. The portal is where you go to manage or update your open incidents, including any opened on your behalf by the Online Help Desk.

If you are experiencing issues with on-campus technology services or cannot access the CSCU IT Services Portal please contact the TRCC IT department at 860-215-9049. An incident will be opened on your behalf and TRCC IT will respond as quickly as possible.

The TRCC IT department is currently available during the following hours:

8:00am to 4:00pm, M-F (on-site)

4:00pm to 8:00pm, M-F (limited telephone support)

Note: The TRCC IT office (C135) is currently closed to non-IT staff but will reopen for walk-in support for both on-ground and on-line students once COVID-19 contact restrictions are lifted.
