The Coronvavirus/COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on the MassArt community. The Technology department continues to provide support to the MassArt community, but access to our facilities and the delivery of some of our services has changed in response to the pandemic.
Access to Facilities
While faculty and staff continue to work remotely, only authorized personnel may access campus facilities. Accordingly, Technology department offices and facilities, including Tech Central and the Lab, are closed to the MassArt community and the public as long as these restrictions are in place.
We may access these offices and facilities provisionally to support the College's operations at the discretion of the Chief Information Officer / Assistant Vice-President of Technology, or the direction of the President or the Cabinet.
Technology department staff will continue to provide remote support for faculty, staff and students to facilitate business continuity, administrative and academic operations, and online teaching and learning. Additionally, we will continue to maintain enterprise infrastructure, applications, and services to the best of our ability.
The following services will be unavailable while access to campus facilities' restrictions are in place:
Equipment checkout via Tech Central in Tower 312
Printing, output and scanning services available in The Lab on the 3rd Floor of the Tower, or at other locations we support
Computer labs on the 3rd floor of the Tower, or at other locations we support
