While the Office of Information Technology (OIT) provides institute-wide information technology (IT) services for all departments at Georgia Tech, the College of Computing's Technology Services Organization (TSO) provides local support and baseline IT services for the advanced technologies that sustain the College's programs in instruction, research and administration. TSO uses a distributed approach to deliver baseline IT services and supports Faculty, Staff and Students in each of the buildings that CoC occupies (CCB, KACB, TSRB, and Coda). In addition, TSO and CoC Research Centers jointly fund Research Technologists to provide specialized technology services for advanced research programs.

The following table provides a high-level view of our baseline services with links to more detailed information. If you do not see the services you are looking for, please check out the Other Services page, or contact the TSO Help Desk with questions.
