ITS manages and operates one primary data facility in the Center for Technology and Learning Media (CTLM) and supports several satellite facilities on campus. The main Computer Commons is located on the first floor of the CTLM in the east wing, along with some of our shared staff spaces. The east wing also houses some computer teaching labs on the ground (basement) floor. Additionally, the west wing houses some computer teaching labs, a 150-seat lecture hall, study rooms, MEL laboratories, the Physics Learning Studio (PLS), and the Center for Engineering Education (http://engineering-education.mines.edu).
Most of our staff shares space located in 1600 Jackson, leaving only a few teams elsewhere. Please see the bottom of this page for which teams can be found where.
Hours listed apply to the academic year only and may differ for Mines holidays, break periods, and special circumstances. End of semester, summer, closings, and other special hours will be posted in the building and the announcements section of the ITS website. The building is accessible via BlasterCard 24/7.
