CUMC IT Student Walk-in Desk

The CUMC IT Service Desk is now back at its normal location on the 2nd floor of the Hammer Building, with weekday hours of 9am to 7pm for the student walk-in desk. We appreciate everyone's patience during the ongoing construction work in Hammer. Please see our hours and information for full details on phone, email and weekend support.

Manage and Report Spam Messages

The CUMC spam filter blocks a huge number of unwanted messages regularly. If you receive spam please see instructions on how to report it and help improve the spam filter for everyone using CUMC email. For tips on easily identifying spam, phishing and other malicious messages be sure to visit the Email Security page as well.

Macintosh OS 10.12 Sierra Release

Apple has released the latest version of its Macintosh operating system called 10.12 or "Sierra". Please avoid issues that come with any new OS version by not being an early adopter. We will post information on testing and support at CUMC in future announcements and on the Operating System Compatibility and Support page.

Note that beta and newly released operating systems and programs are almost never guaranteed to work immediately with off the shelf software or common Medical Center resources such as secure wifi, VPN, Exchange email, and other frequently used programs.
