Numbers add up on the cutting edge

The TECH Center celebrates its official grand opening on Thursday, Feb. 16, at 4 p.m., with a ribbon-cutting ceremony featuring President David Adamany and the Temple University Board of Trustees.

In just one month, the TECH Center is quickly becoming a main attraction for students on campus. In the first two weeks of operations, more than 38,000 students made use of TECH Center resources.

During the spring semester, the center is open 24 hours a day, from noon Sunday through 7:30 p.m. Friday, and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.

For more information and a quick tour of the TECH Center, go to http://techcenter.temple.edu.

Checklist available for a smooth move

If you will be moving to another office, you will most likely need to relocate a number of resources, such as your computer and telephone.

In addition, you may have to change your personnel data, information in the Cherry & White pages and your parking lot assignment.  

Computer Services has compiled a new “Checklist for Relocating Resources” to help you coordinate the changes affected by moving to another office. Service departments, charges, and time frames for completing requests are included with links to forms that you can download or submit online.

The Checklist for Relocating Resources is available in the Staff section of the Computer Services Web site, under Connecting to Temple Resources, at http://cs.temple.edu. You can also directly access the checklist by going to http://cs.temple.edu/movingchecklist.htm.
