Computing Services and Systems Development (CSSD) provides innovative information technology services that support learning, teaching, research, and business at the University of Pittsburgh.

Among the many services that we offer are: data networking, security, telephone and voice systems, and the University's Web portal, My Pitt (my.pitt.edu). Our state-of-the-art Network Operations Center provides secure hosting and monitoring services for enterprise-wide applications and network services. Our Enterprise Solutions, including My Pitt Email, network-based firewalls, and Web hosting bring the high reliability and consistent security required by the University. End-user support is available around the clock through the Technology Help Desk and is supplemented with a number of specialized, onsite support programs. We also offer software packages to students, faculty, and staff at no cost or reduced cost through Software Distribution Services.

On its Web site celebrating the 225th anniversary of Pitt's founding, the University highlights the national recognition we have received for innovation and excellence.

But most importantly - behind all the technology - are many talented and highly-skilled people. These technical professionals have expertise in networking, telecommunications, application development, information security, computing operations, end-user support, and other technology-related areas. Their work has received both local and national awards.
